Centre for Indian Music Excellence

The almost eternal story of Indian music is consistently marked by instances of evolution.

With a multi-dimensional character, Indian music encapsulates a plethora of genres; from classical forms like Carnatic and Hindustani, to the folk traditions of varied geographies, to popular film music to fast-surfacing Indian rock, and world music collaborations. An ocean of talent that has bred the likes of immortal Tansen, the mesmerizing Ravi Shankar, and the iconic A.R Rahman, Indian music is both a mirror to society and an outpouring of emotion.
