The Chandi Charan Saha Foundation is set-up and mentored by Hindusthan Music Publishing (P) Ltd. Hindusthan is the 2nd Oldest Music Company in India having been set-up in 1932. It has, this July, completed 9o years in existence. Its catalogue spans the era of the Cylinder Roll, 78-RPM, Microgroove Records (both 45RPM and 331/3RPM), Audio Cassettes and Compact Disc. It is now active in catering Music on-line.
There are some invaluable recordings in its catalogue, like the voice of Rabindranath Tagore, Ustad Faiyaz Khan, K.L.Saigal and Sachin Deb Burman to name a few.
The requirement of an Archive to preserve, store and disseminate such recordings across the entire cumulative music companies has resulted in the creation of the Chandi Charan Saha Foundation, in the name of the founder of Hindusthan Music Publishing (P) Ltd.
