Improving lung health is now only a playlist away…

Mumbai, 7 April 2022: This World Health Day, Radio network BIG FM, in partnership with WATConsult, an Isobar company & the globally awarded hybrid digital agency from dentsu India, has launched an exclusive #DhunWorkout playlist on the music streaming app, Gaana. Unlocking the hidden potential of Bollywood, the songs curated in the playlist intend to improve overall lung health through efficient breathing techniques. The exercises under this initiative are not just the regular ‘breathe in and breathe out’ techniques that are common in the health and fitness space but also have an element of fun and excitement to them.

The Dhun Workout playlist is a permanent feature on the platform. This means that the audiences have access to these lung workouts at any point in time and anywhere, all they need to do is sing along to the tunes and feel their lungs perform better with time. Apart from being present on Gaana, the Dhun Workout tracks will also be played on-air and promoted across social media. Additionally, this initiative will be supported by various celebrities and RJs, simultaneously making it the new normal lung health practice.
