Press Trust of India New Delhi
Experts from a host of countries hope to capture strains of classical music being practised in India and other parts of the world at an international conference that opens here tomorrow.

The two-day seminar on 'Indian Classical Music: Teaching and Performing Abroad' will see an exchange of ideas between propagators of Hindustani and Carnatic classical music forms in India and other countries.

The sessions, which include talks on teaching of Hindustani classical instrumental music and Carnatic classical music abroad, will conclude on both days with evening concerts by well-known artistes.

"Here in India, the teaching of Indian classical music follows a conservative pattern. However, in foreign countries the teaching style is totally different. We would like to discuss different styles followed in different countries," said TV Manikandan, associate professor at the Department of Music, University of Delhi.

Among those attending the conference will be experts from countries such as the USA, Mauritius, Bangladesh and Nepal.

Organised by the Music Department, Faculty of Music and Fine Arts (Delhi University) in collaboration with the Indian Council for Cultural Relations, the seminar at the University's Conference Centre ends on February 28.
