The Coke Studio movement has always been about the celebration of diversity in music, owned by a strong community of over 500 musicians and millions of music lovers. Today, after 5 years, we are immensely proud of the impact created by this unique platform in lending impetus to Independent music in the country; in turn giving an opportunity to aspiring musicians spread across the length and breadth of the country. Now through Coke Studio Roots, we have made an attempt  to further leverage the platform of Coke Studio in discovering and unearthing rich musical talent from deep pockets of Punjab. 1800 kms travel through Punjab and a pool of 500 artists makes this a very serious effort. Through the new compositions by Coke studio Roots, we intend to continue spreading happiness through the language of music.

The Peninsula Studios has been our partner in this journey “

Peninsula Studios, in the last six years, has redefined listening. Becasue listening is not  what you feel like doing: it is also how your listening pleasures are both crafted and curated and then finally presented. In that regard, Peninsula is our modern day version of a listening museum: where sounds have been captured by voices many a time unknown but resonating with such admirable effect. It is a museum that invites you to share the history of music and the voices that dot our country and present them in a manner that is both unique and elegant.

I am so super proud and utterly inspired by the journey and work of the Peninsula Studios. I remember when it was being imagined, even then as a vision it seemed like such a powerful and visionary idea.

Now just a few years down the road it's already nurturing, archiving and recording the works of so many of Inda's best musicians and working with the best sound technicians and building an amazing team.

 

This is labour of love, that generations of not only Indians, but people all over the world will be able to access and appreciate!

 

Fantastic effort for the music and the musicians, for the industry and every one who is connected to it and for the world heritage.

God bless your progress.

Dear Subroto, what you and your team are doing is a path breaking and transformational in the field of rural Indian music. Giving unknown artists with exceptional talent in rural India a chance to showcase their talent to the world, you are preserving history and heritage of rural Indian music for ages to come. Iam proud of your visionary efforts and perseverance of Team TPS in brining this concept to reality.

The Peninsula Studios is not only a powerful idea, it is a phenomenon that connects the souls with in and beyond the Indian peninsula.

Music has an aura of local and seasonal fruit, but when transported away from where it grows becomes a novelty and finds its place in recipes of many minds. 

Our great Indian Peninsula has mighty rivers flowing from the highest mountain ranges of the world, these rivers blend into one another at many confluences such as Sangams and Trivenis. They pass through various cultures and traditions carrying every ritual and belief to the oceans of the world which covers two third of the earth's surface. Peninsula Studios is an idea that not only enthralls the minds of an individual, but also connects the souls of the Globe joined by the Universal Studios that partner with it.

We wish the team of the Peninsula Studios the very best, salute to you and Subroto, our most revered friends.

I am a lover of music, art, architecture.

I love the idea of The Peninsula because the boundaries are regional & not restricted to a particular country.

 It is  very difficult to draw rigid musical boundaries in the region or even  the world. The Peninsula Studio is based in India but I know that the music will cover the entire sub continent.

 

Spanish music, specially the Flamenco was inspired by the rhythm & percussion & beat from our part of the world. Some aspects of our rhythm & music has travelled all the way from Africa or Spain. 

Music is a wonderful way to build bridges.

All your musicians are loved in Pakistan & vice versa.

It was through music that we met entire Peninsula Studios fraternity.
