Sanchayan by Sangeet Natak Akademi

Over the past six decades, Sangeet Natak Akademi has built up an archive of audio and video tapes, photographs, slides and films on the performing arts. Documentary films in the archive have been screened for the benefit of general and specialized audiences from time to time. In 2005, an initiative was taken to exhibit the films on a regular basis. The first fortnightly screening  was held on 24th June 2005 at the Sahitya Akademi Auditorium, New Delhi. Two films on Ustad Allauddin Khan and Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, Both directed by Hari Das Gupta were shown on that occasion.

Sanchayan is a new initiative of the Akademi to share its collections with those who relish the performing arts through the screening of video recordings.
