Mapping India's Folk Music Styles

Posted on

After we created a map for India's Folk Painting styles, we realised that folk music, folk dance were so closely connected with folk art, so why stop at just mapping folk art! Here's our next map in our series of 'all things folk' in India.. 'India's Folk Music Map', next up will be folk instruments, folk dances... and slowly we will also start exploring the interconnectedness of all of these wonderful arts. And maybe even start creating a database of small snippets all of these different folk music styles by folk artists across India, after all, we love discovering hidden gems :). As always, let us know what you think and if we have missed anything in the comments below.

    Appreciate your team for coming with such a massive work. But having said this, you could have invested little bit to get accurate data. As those are very prestigious for people. Especially, people like me we keep special attention and regards for folk art and culture. Never wanted to compromise on that and propagate wrong information. What you have provided about Kerala is partially wrong. You may correct the same and don’t spread the wrong information. Hope you will do the needful.

    Myself, involved in folklore research and you can connect us www.vayali.org
