Dr. Suresh Chandvankar, of the Society of Indian Record Collectors, is in possession of one of the largest, rarest and most important collections of early recorded Indian music on 78 rpm. He edited & published the Society's magazine, 'The Record News', from 1991-2012, and is a fount of knowledge on this rapidly disappearing era of music. He has collaborated with Ian Nagoski and Robert Millis in unearthing and documenting this music through releases via the Mississippi, Canary and Sublime Frequencies labels. Dr. Suresh's most recent project was digitizing and annotating hundreds of personal copies of Odeon and Young India 78 rpm recordings to the British Library as part of their Endangered Archives Program.
Dr. Suresh Chandvankar presents 'Songs and Stories', an audiovisual talk on early recorded Indian classical music and musicians.
