India: AIR launches nationwide Talent Hunt show for tribal population

It is an open platform for the vast reservoir of untapped talent of tribal population across the country. National Channel of All India Radio has launched a nationwide Talent Hunt show titled Adi Swar for tribal music.

This show provides a free platform for tribal population anywhere in India to upload an audio clipping or send an audio CD of their singing performance without any restrictions imposed on their age, sex or economic status.

The term “Adivasi” is used for tribal populace which constitutes the original inhabitants of India. India’s tribal populations have contributed immensely to the cultural heritage of the country.

The Government of India in recent years has strived to integrate the tribal people into the mainstream of the society. In pursuance of such ideals the Government has framed many policies and laws to promote tribal culture.

This Talent Show is one of such initiatives which will be a unique platform for showcase of musical talent for tribal population.
