About the author: 

Anurag Banerjee is an independent photographer from Shillong based between his hometown and Bombay. In a career spanning just over a decade he has worked for a number of brands and organisations and his work has been extensively published in print and online. In 2022, his first long-term body of work Love in Bombay inspired the title sequence of the Amazon Prime show Modern Love Mumbai.

Anurag’s first self-published book I’m not here, partly funded by a grant from Nazar Foundation, explored the idea of home and was released in 2022. The Songs Of Our People, made with the support of Meghalayan Age Ltd., is Anurag’s second self-published book. 

About The Songs of Our People: 

‘The Songs Of Our People’ is a self published book by Anurag Banerjee that looks at identity and belonging through the lives of musicians in the North-Eastern state of Meghalaya. Having taken root during the CAA/NRC protests of 2019/2020, a large part of the book looks at genres such as Rap and RnB in Meghalaya but also explores the states diversity and rich cultural heritage through music of all genres. Looking at music that comes from all parts of the state, the book attempts to paint a holistic picture of music in Meghalaya and is a celebration of the place and its people.
