The Myanmar Music Archive was co-created in 2022 in collaboration with In Place Of War, a global organisation that uses creativity in places of conflict as a tool for positive change. The project is supported by the British Council.


In partnership with Gitameit Music Institute - a non-profit community centre and music school based in Yangon, Myanmar devoted to music teaching, nurturing and performing - we created a 3-part workshop ‘Developing a Music Archive’, consisting of practical tasks, exploring the purpose and importance of archiving music, reflecting the history of Burmese people and their culture through music.

Based in different regions across Myanmar, 7 musicians took part in the workshops and discussed different methods of recording, licensing and how they can build and develop their own personal archives. Each participant was set the task of recording their own piece of music to share with the group. The music they recorded form the foundations of this archive, containing audio and video recordings of both traditional and modern music. The workshops provided a space to share a mutual passion for composing and performing and to share stories about both modern and traditional instruments and influential musicians from Myanmar.

This is an open archive and we encourage musicians and individuals to send their recordings from Myanmar music to, to collaborate with the initiative and keep it growing.
