Abstract

This article deals with an overview of the origin and development of modern music in Guwahati (GMC), Assam. Development of modern music in the region reveals a long mythology and history. The development of modern music has been tried to be established on lights of diversity, cultural fusion, social identity, globalization and travel of popular sounds. The article is based on a secondary source of data as well as primary data. Other sources of data collection are various articles on music published in magazines, blogs, and books, listening to songs from music albums, both print, and electronic media. Some external links also were used like conversations and personal interviews with some experts in the area. The survey for the collection of primary data in the study is done online with the help of Google Forms. As per the topic of the study, a number of stakeholders related to modern music in the study area were considered. The survey schedule was prepared in Google Forms (a facility to create and operate online surveys) which was online between 30th September 2018 to 31st October 2018. The stakeholders like lyricists, composers, musicians, technicians, producers, promoters, singers and listeners were recruited via e-mails, WhatsApp with prior confirmation over mobile messages or phone calls. The musicians and other stakeholders related to music are very mobile and elusive, so difficult to find them and apply conventional surveys. To overcome this practical hurdle of a collection of the data smart survey technique i.e. online survey has been applied in the study as nowadays almost all stakeholders are highly engaged in the internet.
