The Song is a research project of Ashhar Farooqui aka Toymob. It is a collection of audio-video recordings of travels across India in search of folk musicians and instruments.
The journey gives one a glimpse of an India other than its metros and a moment into the lives of folk musicians keeping ancient traditions alive.
The scope of the project is to sense the rich diversity of Indian folk music and the initiation is by first traveling to its four corners; Kashmir, Kerala, Nagaland and Kutch. Beyond that, more travel has happened in the East through the regions of West Bengal and Meghalaya.
This blog will flow in the form of a diary, recalling day by day turn of events in the travel along with pictures, videos, audio and other insights.It will grow with more travels…
