A Museum Dedicated To Indian Music To Open In Bengaluru

Posted at February 11th, 2017 | by Shivani Goel | in

Bangalore is paying the ultimate homage to music by erecting a museum dedicated to Indian music and all that lies within. The upcoming Centre for Indian Music Experience (IME) has been in the pipeline for a long time and should open within the next six months. Museums dedicated to music are present around the globe but it’s a first for India.

“As a musician, I react very emotionally to music, and I want people to experience that magic,” says project director Manasi Prasad, a young Carnatic vocalist with a dual background in management. “The auto rickshaws are like little mobile musical shrines, running around everywhere and reflecting the personalities of the drivers. It was natural for us to use those,” said Sujait Tolat, design collaborator.

The hardest part was deciding what goes into the museum as three floors of 20,000 square feet can’t accommodate everything about Indian music. The content committee was headed by Pappu Venugopala Rao, a secretary of the Madras Music Academy. Very few musicians that are still alive will be immortalised in the museum right now.

You can check out the walk though posted by the IME below and once it opens, you should definitely visit this masterpiece!
