The Travelling Archive: Sounds of Bengal

Was back to looking at sound and found this amazing project called The Travelling Archive. It was started in 2003 by Moushumi Bhowmik a singer and writer based in Kolkata as a collaboration with Sukanta Majumdar, a sound recordist and sound designer. Together they have been touring Bengal – including Bangladesh, West Bengal, Assam exploring, listening and recording the sounds of folk music. Their website is a great resource holding within it field recordings as well as documentation of their journey and what making this archive means. It is quite rare to come across a website that holds so much of the process. Great work!
