Registered as a Section 8 ‘Not for Profit’ organisation in 2013, Anahad Foundation works towards preserving and empowering folk music and musicians across India through the use of production, technology, copyrights and song writing skills. Through our initiative we uplift and bring back under privileged tribal folk musical communities into mainstream by providing them access to production technologies at their doorsteps. Using a portable battery operated setup, music videos and webpages are created to provide an online presence for artists.
