Enjoyed a private concert of amazing quality at the International Music Center Ashram. The musicians are excellent and their passion for education is communicative. We could chat after the concert and ask as many questions as we wished about Indian classical music. We both enjoyed the concert and learned a lot. And it added to the charm of the visit of this incredible city.

We were happy to see and listen to Sandeep on Tablas with his colleague (don't know the name) on Sitar. Beautiful atmosphere and very nice people!

I contacted the place through the Facebook page and although there were no concert that day, they were willing to do so for us if we wanted. It wasn't expensive and we had a great live classical Indian music concert.

So... Being a huge Indian classical music fan, I thought the musical walking tour would have loads of opportunities to see musical instruments being played...also showcasing the history and nature of Indian classical music in the city. I was Pretty disappointed to find that the tour had really nothing to do with music. Our tour guide Adil.. Took us down to a music shop on a winding street. I happen to play tabla.. So I played with a gentleman on the sitar. That was as musical as it got. The music ashram was closed (something I feel or guide should have known) and the rest of the tour consisted of our guide taking us for a walk along the ghats to the funeral pyres. Then it started to rain, and we and our guide departed. I think the tour has so much potential, but its stunted by Good research and lack of enthusiasm or care. It was not worth the money I payed.
