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 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).
