Journey of the Banam

One of the outcomes of the exhibition ‘Cadence and Counterpoint: Documenting Santal Musical Traditions’ is an essay by one of the curators, Mr Mushtak Khan, on the Banam, the Santal stringed instrument sculpted from wood. The exhibition brought together Banams from three different collections and the essay discusses their distinct perspectives.
