Festival of Indian Instrumental Music
An NCPA Presentation
The Indian subcontinent abounds in a variety of musical instruments, and a considerable specialisation is displayed in instrumental usage. Instruments present music solo, 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 (rudraveena), string-bowed (sarangi), wind-blown (bansuri) and drums-percussion (tabla).
On each day at 6.00 pm, Dr. Suvarnalata Rao will give a pre-event talk on specific instruments presented on the respective days.
Box Office now Open.
