Ethnomusicologist - Musician

Our team has deep partnerships with locals in a variety of ministries, including education, empowering locals and youth, and business startups. We have a weekly fellowship which is in need of someone to help us capture and create materials for our fellowship. This could include a booklet for our fellowship, audio recordings or song writing workshops

There are currently 2 families in the city who are looking for teammates to promote and encourage indigenous, local expression of South Asian art and music. We have the cultural know-how and ongoing relationships, and are looking for more teammates to help execute new ideas to impact lives.

South Asian music and art is unlike anything you've ever experienced. The long history and deep meaning is beautiful and being forgotten with each passing day.

As a part of our local fellowship and evangelism efforts, we preserve and create new indigenous forms of worship. Song writing, recording and distribution of local music is part of the important role we play to show how valuable and irreplaceable this unique culture is to Christ.

We have our own local fellowship where we invite others to join and learn about Christ without denying their local culture and family background. The trend otherwise, is to attend a Westernized fellowship.

As a part of this fellowship and movement, we invite creatives to help us preserve the culture and language of the local people through music. This could be through

-assisting local partners with content creation of storytelling in their own language

-working with local recording artists to preserve and promote their music

-teaching music of various kinds to locals

-learning local classical music and participating in performances and cultural events

-starting song-writing workshops for locals to retain and celebrate their music and storytelling.

We live in one of the most economically underprivileged parts of India, where a confluence of different religions, economic backgrounds and class make up this diverse and complex environment.

Being that we are located in one of the most unreached places in the world, with a burgeoning population and a curious and growing youth population, workers are needed among the youth of our city.
