Bariya Streaming Site Polyphones - Bariya
Bariya Studio, Hauz Khas Village, New Delhi
The stream is located inside Hauz Khas Village, overlooking the medieval 13th-century Hauz Khas Complex, which houses a lake, the tomb of Sultan Firoz Shah Tughlaq of the Delhi Sultanate, remains of a madrasa and a mosque, surrounded by a forest patch.
Sunrise and sunset hours catch around 120 species of birds with their calls and songs. The stream also catches Azan (call to prayer), five times a day from a nearby mosque while most afternoons local vendors with their carts, and children can be heard from the street below. The street, which is at the intersection of two small slums, becomes sonically very proactive during times of political campaigns, rallies, and public meetings. Evenings usually catch echoes from surrounding cafes and pubs hosting live music events, while as night approaches, Indian spotted eagles, Indian Flying fox bats and some Brown Fish Owls come to rest in the Peepal Tree directly overlooking the stream box.
The STREAMBOX Live audio transmitter is provided by Soundcamp and Locusonus
