We’re a window to contemporary musicians and instruments
around you,
which experiment with music everyday.


Here,
Musicians will find
a genre agnostic,
band agnostic,
act agnostic,
space to explore their instrument.
A musician’s way into their style,
rather than the other way around.
A Play Space For Musicians,
looking out for ideas
to create on
and collaborate with


We’re from the school of thought
that video playthroughs are the next big medium
through which a musician can showcase
their skills and expertise
and connect with an audience
which can give them due appreciation
and attention through it.


A video journal into the lives and work
of modern musicians
and the ecosystem
through which they create music.


We cater to musicians.
The brilliant ones.
The not so-brilliant ones.
The teachers. The learners.


The instruments.
The obscure ones.
The not so obscure ones.


For the guitar.
The lute.
The Ravanhatta.
The drums. The mridangam.
The hang drum.
The Hoffnet Igntion club Bass.
The Hiren Roy Travel Sitar.


We talk music, instrument,
videography, audio production,
music education and technology.


A play space for Home Musicians,
their instruments
and the stories they create together.
