Ritesh Gohiya

Based in Harda, Madhya Pradesh, Ritesh is facilitating dialogue and solidarity on India’s constitutional values through music. 

He and his team at SEHDO are creating alliances and platforms of folk artists, rural musicians, and grassroots young performers from the Dalit and Adivasi communities of Central India.  Through fellowships, a community recording center, and cultural events, SEHDO is launching young performers and local bands, strengthening the Kabir-Nirguni music practices of the region, and rebuilding the livelihoods of artists. 

Ritesh has informally trained and mentored more than 2000 rural youth musicians to build their practice of performing and dialoguing with peer networks on living the Indian constitution through music in the Kabir tradition.
