Festival of Indian Instrumental Music
Godrej Dance Theatre
Friday, 7th & Saturday, 8th April – 6.00 pm
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 eighth edition of this festival will showcase four instrumentalists wielding instruments from different categories – string-plucked (sitar), string-bowed (violin), air-blown (shehnai) and drums-percussion (tabla).
Each day at 6.00 pm, Dr. Suvarnalata Rao will present a pre-event talk on instruments presented on the respective days.
Hassan Haider (shehnai)
M. Narmadha (violin)
