The tribes have preserved their music for thousands of years and the music is still pure and unchanged. They discovered this music from their encounters in the jungle. Bastar Band’s journey started with documentation of the varied music found in the area. The founder of the band Anoop traveled across the Bastar region to explore the music and collected a number of songs and indigenous instruments. He then formed a team of tribal people from across the region.
Madhya Pradesh is home to many tribal communities and here in the deep forests of the state, age old music is still alive and being practised by a large population. We are bringing to you the soulful music of Gond community that was presented by the tribal artists of Dindori. The songs were recorded at Madhya Pradesh Tribal Museum.
