Research on Interculture

The Saath-Saath Project is curated by Prof. Tejaswini Niranjana from the Centre for Cultural Research and Development (CCRD), under the Department of Cultural Studies. It involves a set of cross-cultural collaborations between musicians and scholars, reflecting upon the cultural practice in and discovering links between Indian and Chinese music


The project invited speakers to share their personal journeys of experimentation with different kinds of musical practice, and to offer insights into "practice as research" in music-making and performance. Our Unit Head Prof. Ip Kimho, also a CCRD research fellow, delivered a seminar on his experience in performing Hindustani music with both the Chinese Yangqin and the Indian Santoor:
