Sitar Craft is an album by progressive rock musician Ro Panuganti under his project GameRaga focusing on video game soundtracks arranged for both Classical and Modern Indian styles influencing
rock and metal. Inspired by Raga Rock and Bollywood scores, Sitar Craft employs the titular sitar, guitars, tabla, and other eclectic Indian instruments to transport listeners into a subcontinent often underrepresented in the video game world. Songs once written for desert levels, warriors, or magical places are transported idiomatically into new but familiar styles and contextualize music into the Raga.

GameRaga is a project by Ro Panuganti, a rock/metal guitarist and composer best known for covering video game soundtracks for concept albums and engaging, VFX-heavy music videos.
