Instruments India

Explore the fascinating genre of Indian music through our archive of images, sounds and videos. Instruments India is a rich and varied resource, and you can discover the background of each instrument, how it is played, and the type of setting it is normally played in.

If you are a beginner, student, expert or music lover, you can now enjoy a preview to a performance, find out more about a concert you have just seen, or get some background information on instruments in different settings.

Instruments India is the result of a partnership between MILAPFEST and LIVERPOOL HOPE UNIVERSITY, and the archive of instruments is a dynamic resource, which will grow on an ongoing basis.

The website was first created with funding from a joint Hope-Milapfest bid to the AHRC (Arts & Humanities Research Council) to create an archive, composition and commissioning project, in partnership with Senior Lecturer Dr Manuella Blackburn, of the Music Department at Liverpool Hope University.
