Folk Music has been very integral in the lives of people throughout the history of Kachchh. In fact, this is a land of legends revealed through folklores and musical tradition. And the Folk Musicians were highly esteemed in the society.
There are more than 26 musical genres of in Kutch. But today the sustainability of many of these forms of Folk music is in danger for a variety of reasons.
Kala Varso was founded in 2012 to preserve and perpetuate the rich tradition of Folk Music & Culture of the Kutch region and to provide financial & social security to the Folk Music artists. We do so by recognising and supporting the Folk Musicians in ways that enable them to continue their musical practices.
