Why subscribe?

Weeklyish newsletter with recommendations for short and long-form classical music from India. If I know, I write about the history of the Raag(mood), composition, meter, etc.

Occasionally, I share playlists, information about upcoming concerts, rising artists, and other information that comes by my desk.

What’s my motivation?

Get involved

I hope to create a community of musicians and volunteers who can help with this effort. If you’re interested in being part of this group, want to write about classical music, please sign up as a founding member.
