“Why not join a sitar lesson in Jaipur? Or meander into the beautiful temple city of Chennai?”

This month, we’re thrilled to share our brand new 30-minute collection of classical music from India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and beyond! Paying equal attention to more established as well as lesser-known examples, this collection offers a fresh and progressive take on classical music from South Asia.

Jump on a journey to expand your classical musical imagination with sounds that have travelled across time and space in totally new and unexpected ways. From contemporary field recordings to vocalised rhythms and melodies performed at sunset, get ready to be surprised and entertained whilst learning a lot about one of the richest musical heritages in this world.

If you’d like to learn more about the music in this collection, join our free Minute of Listening Live sessions on March 2nd, 3rd and 5th, where we’ll be exploring some of these sounds together with their creators! For more great insight into the styles, genres, instruments and more in this collection, we also recommend a few brilliant resources here.
