Mast Qalandars of The Peninsula Studios - Rajasthan

Live @ Bengal Club - Kolkata 

 

 

We recorded over 700 ordinary musicians from small towns and villages of Rajasthan in 2010 of which, 17 were mentored in our studio in Delhi.

 

We curated, mentored and recorded the music they were good at in our studio.

 

10 tracks were mixed and mastered in London in 2011 by us to produce a world-class album called "The MastQalandars of The Peninsula Studios" which was awarded the best album by the Recording Association of India.

After returning from a successful overseas concert in Dubai, the Mast Qalandars performed as a band at premier events like Nokia Music Connect and high-end corporate events like Market Research Society of India. ​

 

The performance received a standing ovation from Imogen Heap @ Nokia Music Connect. 

Artists in Residence like Kutle Khan, Dayam Khan and Nathoo Lal Solanki travel, perform and record, their achievements make us proud.

 

Music changes lives.
