Sur-Mala Hindustani Classical Music Concert Series

Sur-Mala Hindustani Classical Music Concert Series 2018

Music is an integral element in the Indian life style. Over the years, it has transformed itself into a form that has the power to entertain and also relax and rejuvenate one’s mind, body and soul.
Hindustani Classical music is a popular genre of Indian music. The origin of this music dates back to Sam Veda era. It has evolved through different ages of the history and has now become a blend of ritualistic, folk and cultural expression of the sub-continent. ICC Sur-Mala aims to spread the grandiose of hindustani classical music and encourage budding as well as accomplished musicians to share their knowledge and gift with the community.
These classical music concerts will be conducted once every other month at India Community Center. You will also get to enjoy the melodies of a variety of classical music instruments like Flute, Violin, Tabla, Harmonium, Sitar and many more.
Our concert will typically be in two segments – vocal and instrumental. We try to bring well known artists from Bay Area to entertain the community and sometimes, if given an opportunity, will present visiting musicians from India.

Next Sur-Mala concert  is on January 20th, 2018 at 2 pm.
