Songbound is an outreach initiative that brings the transformative power of music to some of India’s poorest and most marginalised children. Since 2012 we have been working with local partners to set up and sustain children’s choirs. Our students rehearse weekly in a safe environment, preparing for performances throughout the year.
Since our foundation, Songbound has built up a network of 25 choirs – impacting the lives of over 500 children per year. Choirs are conducted by local Choir Leaders, who come from a wide variety of Indian and Western musical backgrounds. Choir Leaders receive training from international vocal experts and collaborate with these world-leading musicians on performance projects. These projects play a vital part in helping the children to develop confidence, musicality, and teamwork, whilst enjoying the benefits of singing in a choir.
