About the project

Pehli Pehel is a collection of 10 video songs by 10 independent artists from different corners of India. Each of these songs is an outcome of collaborations by many music artists and musicians that have been part of the project called Zubaan.

There will be songs in seven Indian languages (Hindu, Urdu, Bhojpuri, Odia, Bangla, Koli, and Sanskrit) and will be shot as a performance video in the region or setting that the song belongs to.This initiative aims to help these independent musicians reach out to larger audiences through digital media.



What is Zubaan?

Zubaan is a project that works towards building the independent music scene in India. It's been working with artists and groups who write and compose their own songs from all corners of the country. Through Zubaan, artists from different parts of the country meet, collaborate, and perform together, thus exposing each other to newer audiences and influences. More than 40 musicians have collaborated as part of Zubaan in such a way in different capacities.  



Why are we making this web series now?

The artists of Zubaan have been presenting and refining their songs through live concerts in their local circuits, but a recorded digital release will help them reach a national platform, thus opening up wider opportunities for each one of them. Pehli Pehel will also expose the existing audience to new music and at the same time, will attract new audience that can relate to independent music coming from the Indian heartlands. It will help set an example for the future editions of Zubaan and more artists can join this movement.  

A message from the artistes of Zubaan



Why should people be funding this project?

People should fund this project to encourage more original music to come out of our country. They should fund this project to challenge the conventional notions that have been attached to the idea of independent music in India, which is oriented towards big cities and caters to only a particular type of audience. 

Through the songs of Pehli Pehel, we wish to demonstrate the power of collaborations that have helped bring out the beauty of original songs made by artists living in remote parts of the country but working with each other to build the indie music scene.Those funding Pehli Pehel would support the artists in creating more beautiful compositions, which would in turn, encourage more independent artists to emerge and make music for everybody. 

Why crowdfunding?

The Zubaan project has grown as a result of its many supporters in different cities and villages, who have really given us confidence that there are many who appreciate the work done by the artists and want to support them. However, they cannot fully fund the project as a whole but are capable of giving smaller contributions. So, we want to use the platform of crowdfunding to go back to all of these patrons who are looking to help us. With many people (partners, indie supporters, local music scene supporters) across the musical scenes and regions of the country, this will also be a kind of coming together to build a consolidated music industry as a people driven initiative, which is why we’d prefer a crowdfunding campaign than going to a producer.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 50000 in Sound Engineering/Mixing and Mastering

Rs. 100000 in Music Production

Rs. 50000 in Studio Rental

Rs. 100000 in Video Director

Rs. 50000 in DOP

Rs. 45000 in Editor

Rs. 100000 in Travel / Food / Stay

Rs. 55000 in Admin Cost


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

Since we'll be working as distributed team, where each song is owned by a different set people located in different parts of the country, we may have communication challenges and in scheduling the activities of all members required. Since most of the artists that have collaborated to compose a song might be in different parts of the country, we have to work hard to optimize their travel costs. The same holds true for the technical team as well.

What happens if you don't raise enough funds?

We will have to put this project on hold until we can find other ways to fund it.

Kavish, your humility and a deep connection to your higher SELF is what makes your poetry, singing and music great. I am sure all your other artists in the project share the same traits. In a world with short attention spans, I hope your project inspires the audience to slow down and take a deep breath and immerse them in to themselves.
