The Musical village of Meghalaya

This is the only known music 'skul' in Meghalaya teaching the traditional Khasi tribal music. The skul opens only on Sundays and teaches the kids how to play Khasi instruments for free. The only ray of hope left for the dying traditional Khasi music, the musical school of Wahkhen.   This picture was taken by Gourav Gogoi, aka @gourav_gogoi on a project with us in Meghalaya.
