What is a Chel Chabilo? Its hard to describe to anyone who isn’t Gujarati. A whimsically happy-go-lucky young person who loves everything Gujarati. This show highlights all that is Gujarati, from the vibrant music to the distinct food, culture & traditions from one of the most productive states in India and seemingly a majority within the Indian population in Houston. From the treasury of classic Gujarati movies to folklore, to modern day garba-raas music, enjoy the sounds of Gujarat hosted by lead Ina and Dilip. Some of the popular singers include Pranlal Vyas, Praful Dave, Hemu Gadhvi, Diwaliben Bhil, Damiyanti Bardai and Aishwarya Majumdar. Key music Directors are Avinash Vyas, Dilip Dhodkiya and Gaurang Vyas. The origin of the Masala Radio motto “Halo Re Halo” originates from Gujarati, and roughly translates to “Come and enjoy!”
