A convention to understand Indian heritage

We are also home to numerous varied techniques of creativity that has been passed down from generation to generation but in these modern times and in the hustle bustle of life we don’t pay attention to the symphony of life. SPIC MACAY (Society for the Promotion of Indian Classical Music And Culture Amongst Youth), an organisation made for this purpose recently held a conference to address the crowd about their work, their future plans to uphold the art forms of the past and details for the Memorial Concert for Vidhushi Kishori Amonkar by Padma Vibhushan awardee Vidhushi Girija Devi.
