The Pandemic is Resurrecting India's Folk Arts by Forcing Performers to Make Their Online Debut is an online platform that hosts performances and learning content on classical and folk arts from India. The coronavirus pandemic meant lost income for most of the country’s performers, especially those in rural areas. So many have figured out ways to monetize their arts by putting them online where overseas and domestic subscribers pay to access the performances. Other platforms, such as the nonprofit Kalbeliya World, provides performers with a chance to earn money by offering classes to people from around the world. Most of the students are from the Europe and the Americas.
