Hailing from the hereditary Langha community of musicians, Masoom Parmar is an artiste, curator and arts manager based in Bangalore. Influenced by his own diverse ancestry, his work explores ideas of identity and belonging through the oral, literary and cultural heritage of the subcontinent. He is invested in finding the secular and contemporary in the classical forms of Bharatanatyam and Kathak. His commitment to making the arts a commercially viable career finds expression in associations and collaborations with established and emerging artistes across India. His curatorial work explores the multiplicity and diversity of culture in the Indian subcontinent. He is fascinated by the cross-cultural occurrences that have given birth to different art forms and intends to bring these from the margins to the centre.
