Sadarang Archives was formed in
2000, with the primary
aim of safeguarding the musical and cultural heritage of Pakistan. The concept of Sadarang Archives arose as a result of the
concerns of a few individuals worried about the dilapidated condition of
Pakistan`s classical music scene.
The organisation has
undertaken preliminary steps in their aims, by setting up an archive and
arranging seminars, concerts, lectures and demonstrations by leading
exponents of classical music. We also have a fully equipped audio-visual
media center, conducted extensive fieldwork, enabling us to have an
archive boasting many rare private recordings of masters of yesteryears.
It is hoped
that this website will help to create greater awareness of classical music in
Pakistan, highlighting the importance of our musical heritage and provide
greater exposure to the talented practitioners of this esoteric art form. It has
taken many centuries of sheer toil from practitioners and scholars to get
classical music into the highly developed form it is today, it would be tragic
if this art form disappears from Pakistan. For further information on the organisation
or any artistes featured on this website, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
