An NCPA Presentation
Supported by Tata Capital
Have you always wanted to learn about Indian music but did not know where to start? Have you wanted to be an informed listener of Indian music but didn’t know how? The NCPA offers a special opportunity for uninitiated students, adults and working professionals to open up to the vast treasure of music traditions prevalent on the Indian soundscape today. Highlighting the distinctive features of various music traditions, the session will lean towards ‘art or classical music’, introducing the basic concepts governing performance and aesthetics. Dr. Suvarnalata Rao is a senior disciple of Arvind Parikh, an eminent sitar exponent of the Etawah-Imdadkhani gharana. She is also a trained musicologist, and heads the Indian Music department at the NCPA. The session will be conducted in English and will include audio and video recordings.
