Song of Soul(SOS) is attempting to document and record the inside story of folk and tribal music of India, a major part of which still lies undiscovered. The way the new generation of rural and tribal people is losing interest in keeping their traditional forms of music alive, the time has come to support them through serious collaborative musical exchanges, workshops and shows that can help them to earn and to look at this art form as a promising yet profitable venture, thus making an effort to save this rich variety of musical expressions from becoming extinct.
SOS is focusing on folk and tribal dance, drama, music, instruments and related matters, including the extent to which these cultures retain the rituals, beliefs and identity of their ancestors, and how modern technology has impacted their value systems and heritage. SOS is documenting the complex patterns of changes in folk and tribal song lyrics, melodies, rhythms, and accompaniment as they pass from village to village and generation to generation.
SOS is preventing extinction of folk and tribal musical instruments which are not available in the market or to the common people, by promoting and disseminating knowledge about them. SOS is making village singers and musicians understand their strengths and introduce their talents at the global level, through various projects, awareness programmes and motivational camps.
