The Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) was established in 1987 as an autonomous institution under the Ministry of Culture, Government of India, as a nodal centre for research, academic pursuit, documentation, archiving and dissemination in the field of the arts. ‘The Arts’ here encompass a wide range of subjects - from archaeology and anthropology to the visual arts of photography, painting, architecture, sculpture etc. and performing arts of music, dance, folk arts, theatre, lifestyle and rituals, enveloping them in a complementary, integrative and non-demarcated vision. Through workshops, seminars and conferences, concerts and performances and exhibitions, these cultural artifacts are disseminated to the public at large. The IGNCA has a southern Regional Centre (SRC) headquartered in Bangalore. Its established in 2001 was aimed at intensifying the Centre’s studies on the southern regions art and cultural heritage. Spread over ten acres outside the precincts of the Bangalore University campus, the southern Regional centre is devoted to cross cultural exchanges and various developments in the field of art and culture of India in general and the south India in particular. The centre has initiated several research projects and academic activities. In association with the TAG Group of Companies IGNCA Southern Regional Centre has established an audio-visual archival centre. Sh. R.T Chari, Managing Director of the TAG Corporation, who has established the TAG Music Academy archives in Chennai, share about 1000 hours of live recordings of Carnatic music right from the 1930s. These are from his personal collections that he has assiduously collected in more than 30 years, digitized and catalogued them painstakingly. It is rare to have collectors like him who readily share their collections with institutions. Several artists including ChembaiVaidyanathaBhagavathar, M S Subbulakshmi, D K Pattammal, KV Narayanaswamy, Alathur Brothers, SemmangudiSrinivasaIyer, M D Ramanathan and others are featured in this collection as also recent artists. He also contributed valuable paintings and wall-to-wall murals featuring icons of Indian music, including one by Sri S Rajam which now adorn the archival centre room. In addition to his collection, Sh. Vikram Sampath, former Executive Director of this centre also donated his private archival collection from the Archive of Indian Music (AIM) for old gramophone recordings. These feature recordings on gramophone discs right from 1902 in Hindustani and Carnatic music, folk music, early cinema, theatre recordings, patriotic songs and speeches of leaders. Several artists like GauharJaan, PearaSahab, Maujuddin, KesarbaiKerkar, AriyakudiRamanujaIyengar, Salem Godavari, BidaramKrishnappa, VeeneSheshanna, Mysore Palace orchestra, Bal Gandharva, InduBala, KL Saigal, Kalinga Rao, Ashwathamma, speeches of Gandhiji, Tagore, Subhash Bose etc are part of this collection. Between the TAG Archives and the AIM collection, a major chunk of our country’s musical history has been captured in digital format, right from 1902 to latest times. user-friendly software that allows the users to select the song by various parameters like raga, composer name, genre, artist etc and listen to them as per one’s wish. People can can come to the Centre and access this at the listening kiosks with head phones attached to them, totally free of cost and also can access IGNCA’s visual repository of cultural documentaries and past programmes. There are also digital copies of several rare and out of print books of the 18th and 19th Centuries like Illustration of Ancient Buildings of Kashmir by Henry Hardy Cole(1870), The Campaign in India (1857-58) by George FrancklinAlkins, Les Hindous, ou description de, Leurs Costumes Et. Cers Monies (1810) etc. IGNCA SRC is having a good library mostly relating to arts, literature and culture, close to a lakh rare slides from all over the world and a Reprography unit with around 13500 manuscript in microfilm form from various institutions.
