In a globalized world, where people and cultures are mixing and merging together like never before, our domestic folk music landscape is willfully ignored. Folk music lacks a concentrated presence in India. Lack of interest and attention is putting this music under great threat.

Song of Soul is extending support to the folk music community through Livelihood, Sustainability, Promotion and Preservation.
