AIR launches show to discover untapped talent of tribals
New Delhi: To discover and highlight the untapped talent of the country’s tribal population, All India Radio (AIR) has launched a unique nation-wide talent show featuring their music.
Titled ‘Adi Swar’, the show will provide a free platform for tribal population anywhere in India to upload an audio clipping or send an audio CD of their singing performance without any restrictions imposed on their age, sex or economic status, AIR said in a statement here.
“This show is an open platform for the vast reservoir of untapped talent of tribal population across the country. The term ‘adivasi’ is used for tribal populace which constitutes the original inhabitants of India. India’s tribal populations have contributed immensely to the cultural heritage of the country,” it said.
The government has in recent years strived to integrate the tribal people into the mainstream of the society and in pursuance of such ideals many policies and laws to promote tribal culture have been framed, it said.
“This aforementioned talent show is one of such initiatives which will be a unique platform for showcase of musical talent for tribal population,” the statement added.
