MUSIC celebrated World Music Day in fine style this time.

Sri Kalyan Kamal Roy, a musician, a collector of rare and invaluable recorded music and, above all, a passionate music-listener with a rare academic tilt, delivered a lecture-demonstration.

In the session he told us the story of how World Music, particularly Western Music, started influencing music in India, how the trend gradually ebbed out and how the tides turned subsequently.

MUSIC serve with a chance to witness something rare which one seldom gets to know about Indian Music and its Relation to World Music from such a unique perspective.
