Instruments INDIA, in partnership with Milap, is excited to present the Instruments INDIA Sample Pack; the first in a new generation of sample packs that celebrate the live musicians and vocalists who make these sounds possible. The Instruments INDIA shines a light on the musical heritage these artists belong to, introducing producers around the world to the artists pushing the boundaries of contemporary Indian music.

Drawn from the extensive Instruments INDIA archive, this pack features high-quality recordings of master Indian musicians and emerging talents playing widely known traditional instruments such as the sitar, tabla, and harmonium, as well as a range of rare folk instruments you might not have heard before. Each sample has been carefully curated in consultation with the musicians themselves, allowing you to repurpose the beautiful sounds of their performances while paying homage to age-old musical traditions.

The Instruments INDIA project reassesses the role that professional musicians play in sample pack culture, re-centring their expertise and musical lineage. Click the links below to learn more about the instruments featured in this pack and the world-renowned talents who play them.
