Indian Classical | English | Age 6+


The Indian subcontinent abounds in a variety of musical instruments, and a considerable specialization is displayed in instrumental usage. Instruments present music solos, provide melodic or rhythmic accompaniment, or produce drones. The ninth edition of this two-day festival will showcase four instrumentalists wielding instruments from different categories – string-plucked (sitar), string-bowed (violin & sarangi) and drums-percussion (tabla).

On each day at 6.00 pm, Dr. Suvarnalata Rao will present a pre-event talk on specific instruments presented on the respective days.
