Despite immense talent and a heritage of profound art, the Indian folk musician struggles to make a living from his/her art. Music is a multi-billion dollar industry but folk artists remain on the fringe, eking out a living as street performers. Anahad, a pioneering nonprofit has a mission to “revive, research and innovate music as a driver of change to rejuvenate the society”. It functions as a record label, producing unheard cultural folks which can bring a positive impact on the society.
