The Odissi Project
Documenting the traditional music of Odisha
Odisha's traditional music consists of both classical and folk streams enriched by thousands of ancient songs. From my own research of the subject as a vocalist, this is my attempt to provide a single portal that collates never-before available lyrics, rare literary genres, lost tunes, gramophone recordings, interviews and other archival data to provide a holistic view of this ancient school of music.
Sri Chandramani Lenka is a veteran Odissi musician. His voice has a distinct touch of Puri and his training was mostly under Singhari Shyamasundar Kar and Balakrushna Dash.
Recorded in September 2017
Not too high quality but documentation nonetheless; this is because it was one of my first attempts at documentation, and that too without any specialised equipment.
