Community focused translation, research, and publishing

 

Sylheti Translation And Research (STAR) is an association of independent researchers based in the UK. We are dedicated to studying folk literature from the Sylhet region of Bangladesh and Assam, India, as well as its associated performance traditions. This folk literature covers a huge range of material - from manuscript and printed books known as 'puthis' written in Sylhet's own Siloṭi Nagri script, to songs and dramas collected from audio and video recordings.
