SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Shastra is an organization that supports artists who create meaningful connections between the great musical traditions of India and the West. As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, many musicians from Indian and Western musical backgrounds have chosen to embrace both traditions equally, working between them in unique and innovative ways based on their experience, exposure, and individual aesthetic. At Shastra, we aim to set the stage for this new order of musicians, to create a community of artists who contextualize one another’s work, and to share this beautiful, cross-cultural music with audiences around the world.  The Shastra Symposium 2018 is our second peer-reviewed conference that brings together scholars, performers, and composers to explore this fascinating music.
