Taal – The Beat of Indian Classical Music and Dance

Why do Indian dancers wear ankle bells? Is time in a cycle? What is rhythm in Indian classical music?

Join this informal and open session to discover how rich artistic traditions tie together and explore freedom within structure.

Led by experts Ustad Dharambir Singh MBE (Sitar Music Society), Smita Vadnerkar (Nupur Arts) and Nilima Devi MBE (Centre for Indian Classical Dance), this is a unique chance to deepen your understanding and enhance your experience of the classical art forms of India that are often at the core of popular forms such as Bollywood, Folk, Ghazal and Bhajans.
