Collection of anecdotes relating Indian Classical Music happenings in Kolkata is one area of this UGC SAP-DRS project.
We are collecting anecdotes from all possible sources where we can lay our hands. We are trying to involve a good number of collectors. This is an effort to create an oral history of the Indian Classical Music in the city. The mode of collection is audio recording. The source is the persons those relate themselves to Indian Classical Music in some way, from a musician to a listeners and the people in between, i.e. the teachers, people involved in musical concert arrangements, the media involved in music distribution and so on.
We plan to transcribe all the anecdotes in text. The mode of collection is audio recording from the people who has some interesting anecdotes to share. In this site we have placed some anecdotes. In the metadata we have kept a list of key-words for effective search.
