Fellowship for Subroto Roy
Subroto Roy, scholar on Indian Art Music, received an international fellowship from the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation, Colombo, Sri Lanka. It has started on November 1, 2011 under its mandated project 'Diminishing Cultures of South Asia'. Roy will especially focus on the 'Musicoreligious Expression through Saama Veda Singing'. He is currently undertaking field trips to different parts of India to audio/video record living masters and students of the Saama Kouthuma branch of this most ancient form of formalised singing. Congratulations, Roy!
