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.
Song of Soul has acquired a land at Biramdih a remote village and a place rich in folk culture in the fringes of Purulia ( east of India in the state of West Bengal) bordering Jharkhand. Song of Soul proposes to set up an Art and Cultural Centre with state of the art facility and a community radio station for the promotion of rural art and culture.
