Project: Sada Chidiyan da Chamba

Sada chidiyan da chamba (Our temporary nest of birds) is a project that aims to explore the female narrative of Panjabi wedding folk songs in Panjab and the diaspora. Which took place over the past year with a focus on Birmingham and The Black Country led by myself – Rupinder Kaur. The research was carried out through oral history, wedding archives from photographs, and other related items.

This project is supported by the Creative Black Country Open Access Seed Award and is co-produced by Birmingham City University’s Professor Rajinder Dudrah as part of his research project Slanguages with Creative Multilingualism

Due to COVID I am planning to showcase my work online as a virtual exhibition.
