On Saturday, October 20, ICMA Foundation will be hosting a musical concert called "Melange". Targeted at audiences of all ethnicities and musical tastes, this concert aims to introduce Indian Classical Music to people in a very unique and entertaining audio visual presentation.
Dating back to the Vedic period, Indian Classical Music has evolved through a cultural synthesis of several musical streams - predominantly vedic, Persian, and folk. Contemporary music is based on a rich milieu of genres dating as far back as the 12th century, in an expansive canvas comprising today's Northern India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal and Afghanistan. From Khayal to Tarana, Thumri to Ghazal, Sufi to Abhang (and more), Melange - as the name suggests - is a hand-picked assortment of the genres that enrich this musical tradition of India.
Boasting an ensemble cast of accomplished and world-renowned musicians like Mahesh Kale, Ashvini Bhave, Jagan Ramamoorthy, Salar Nader, Chaitanya Kunte and a talented supporting team, Melange is an attempt to create a new benchmark for concerts on Indian classical music, not-to-be-missed!
