Help us produce a recording of the Prabandh sound before these roots of Indian classical music are entirely lost.

by Drum and Brass CIC in Leicester, England, United Kingdom

In this project Drum and Brass will work with communities in the UK and Northern India to research the medieval Indian classical music form of Prabandh. There is an urgent need to capture what we can of this artform while the few masters who can pass on their knowledge are still with us.

The project will entail 

- involving a community of UK musicians from all genres in music research via online discussions with experts in North India involving

- the creation of a digital research hub as a repository and platform for sharing the research process and findings

- raising awareness of this precursor to modern Indian classical music within the modern context of the decolonisation of music
