Celebrating 4 years of “BAITHAK GANA GROUP NATRAJ”
Shivam Rajaram was born on February 22nd, 2002 in The Hague, The Netherlands. He is known as one of the youngest and most popular Baithak Gana singers in the Netherlands. With a lot of love and support from his family and friends, he started taking Baithak Gana singing and harmonium lessons at the age of 12. After numerous gigs, at the age of 14, Shivam became more and more comfortable and was able to shine on stage every weekend with full confidence. He was the only young singer who managed to present a complete ‘moeran’ and ‘lawa’ program. From small house parties, weddings, birthdays and big festivals, Shivam single-handedly turned every occasion into an unforgettable show.
In November of 2016, the band ‘Baithak Gana Group Natraj’ was founded under the leadership of Aatish Rajaram (brother of Shivam Rajaram). The band is named after the Hindu god ‘Shiva’ and is also seen as the God of dance. The band consists of a young spontaneous music group with a strong passion for music and entertainment. They offer a wide repertoire for all special occasions. The band has since grown into one of the most famous local and foreign Baithak Gana formation and is an indispensable part of the Hindu entertainment scene.
In the past four years they have released two successful albums with hit songs like ‘Kothariya mein’ and ‘Hame Chumma Dede’ in addition they have also released three video clips on Youtube with hit songs like ‘Lote Bhoudjie Mashup‘, ‘Pater Tore Mashup‘ and ‘Radica‘. Shivam always knows how to entertain his fans with an enormous social media reach across the Netherlands, Suriname, Guyana, Trinidad and Canada! Stay up to date and enjoy their entertaining music by following “BGG Natraj” on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.

Message from Shivam Rajaram:
I would like to tell everyone to always believe in yourself! It does not matter what you do, always following your dreams. The right support from the people in your immediate environment is particularly important because without their support, I would not be where I am now! “Always make your realistic dreams come true.”
In honor of our 4-year anniversary, we want to entertain our fans, family, friends and acquaintances at home in a Corona-proof way and let them enjoy our anniversary. The anniversary will be broadcast live on Saturday, November 28th, 2020 on the largest social media platform “Facebook”.
