Season 2 launch of Meghalaya Grassroots Music on October 4

Shillong, Oct 3: The Meghalaya Grassroots Music Project, in collaboration with the Tourism Department and The Meghalayan Age, has announced the highly anticipated launch of its second season, slated from October 4 onwards. The event will take place in Police Bazar.

Building on the resounding success of its inaugural season in 2022, the Meghalaya Grassroots Music Project was conceived by the Government of Meghalaya with the vision of nurturing and promoting local musicians, songwriters, composers, event firms, and technical vendors. Furthermore, the project aims to forge a profound connection between music and tourism, spotlighting the rich cultural heritage of Meghalaya.


Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma will grace the occasion as the Chief Guest, along with Tourism Paul Lyngdoh as the Guest of Honour.

The Meghalaya Grassroots Music Project was officially launched on April 26, 2022. This project also offers venues where tourists and locals may enjoy a range of musical acts and attractions while also giving musicians, technical suppliers, and budding event businesses, among others, jobs and financial assistance.

Around 1600 performers were given opportunities to perform at cafes, busking areas, and at special events over the course of the last ten months as part of the MGMP, which has organized around 3000 music events in Shillong, Tura, Jowai, and Sohra.

Since its inception, MGMP has witnessed a wave of talented artists. The State Government has built spaces in Khyndailad, Laitumkhrah, Mawkdok, and Sohra for these live street musical events. Cafes in Shillong, Jowai and Tura regularly host live performances, busking, street plays and café gigs on a regular basis.
