Sawaale was the inaugural Project Songbound project. It included children from Goldsworth Primary School in Woking, UK and the Songbound Prerana Choir. Over the course of six weeks, they communicated over the Internet to compose their own song: ‘Sawaale’. Sawaale means ‘questions’ in Hindi.

Rehearsals in the UK were lead by horn-player Martin Lawrence and violinist Jo Lawrence. Meanwhile, Indian rehearsals were lead by Songbound Choir Leader and playback singer Tamara Menon. The project culminated with a live video link-up between the children. They performed the world premiere of Sawaale together: a song that they could jointly call their own.
