The city of Mumbai lacks open spaces that can be used for Musical and other cultural activities. By studying how music in the city has evolved in the city in the last 30 years. My study was mainly concentrated on how spaces in the city were/are used for music; how spaces where musicians interacted practiced and recorded music evolved over the time period; how musicians used their space. I also studied various institutions of music like music stores, record labels, distribution companies and their evolution over time, a study of the music piracy and underground distribution networks within the city.
