About Us - What is Funkar?

Mission

Funkar International, Inc., is dedicated to preserving and promoting the folk art, music, and language of the Valley of Kashmir.

We strive to preserve traditional forms of folk culture, but we also encourage innovation and experimentation with traditional forms, in the hope that new ideas and energy will elevate the status of these arts among the younger generation of Kashmiris, within the Valley and beyond.
