Musicians Federation

of India (MFI)


If music is a universal language, then Indian music is amongst the oldest and the most respected of those languages. And we, at MFI, are proud and humbled to be the flagbearers of this rich traditional and cultural legacy.

Instituted in 2004, Musicians Federation of India (MFI) is a professionally run NGO and a registered trade union, that represents the interests and rights of thousands of classical, traditional, and orchestra musicians as well as music composers, songwriters across India.

But the support to the artist fraternity is across borders since we’re affiliated to the International Federation of Musicians and are members of the International Music Council (Paris).

Our primary intention is the welfare of music artists, which includes copyrights and royalty as well as the lobbying of governments, both state and central.

We seek to create awareness about the significance that our music has at a cultural, social, as well as economic level. And, while increasing access and interest in music amongst the general public, both within India as well as internationally, the federation also advocate an appropriate framework that will allow equal rights and opportunities to musicians.

We invite every Indian music artist to join the MFI family.
