Re.Imagine India (Research and Development in India 2016)

Inner Vision Orchestra England worked in collaboration with blind musicians in India to create a unique program of music inspired by the rich variety of regional folk music of India.

This research trip to India was funded by the British Council and the Arts Council. It was designed to locate musicians, partners and in gathering research information for investigation into visually impaired musicians lives.

We made lasting and valuable connections with the people and the places we visited and were amazed at the abundance of musical talent we discovered.

The research carried out led to the development of Antardrishti-Inner Vision, which in addition to the UK based Inner Vision Orchestra, also featured four blind musicians who travelled from India to perform.
