M.A.P // A.M.P Highlights Music & Activism In South Asia With Crowdsourced Music Library, Live Launch & More
6 October 2021
German Cultural Institute Goethe-Institut has just launched M.A.P // A.M.P, a programme ranging across mediums like music library, radio programmes and podcasts hosted by respected journalist Bhanuj Kappal, to research, document and inform the discourse around the intersectionality of music and activism in South Asia.
The programme will attempt to focus on topics like music and protest, activism, politics, multiplicity, action, people, agency, metamorphosis and power, – as captured by its acronym title.
For a start, M.A.P // A.M.P is having an open call for its music library which will create a repository of activist music from South Asia which invites everyone from musicians and poets to researchers and listeners to contribute musical works dedicated to social change. The accepted works will be hosted on a Youtube playlist by Goethe-Institut. Head here to make a submission.
Additionally, the programme is hosting a limited-capacity on-ground launch event at Goethe Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan New Delhi on October 9 to mark the start of the programme with further announcements and performances from the likes of Ankur Tewari and Dastaan Live. Registration is essential to attend and can be done here.
