Culture is often defined as the arts and other manifestations of human intellect. Music, art and dance are the elements that form the crux of any culture, and culture is what in turn makes up a society. A city that gives an impetus to its cultural life, is one where its people will thrive, because exposure to culture is what nourishes the human soul, making for a better world.
Luckily Mumbai recognizes the need for a cultural life, which is why there are a number of theater in Mumbai. The Nehru Centre happens to be one of them. Now, if you reside in Mumbai, there’s a good chance you’re familiar with the Nehru Centre. It boasts of the Nehru Planetarium-dedicated to the study of astronomy, The Nehru Centre Art Gallery - which provides a platform for new and young talent to showcase their expertise, and the Cultural Wing which hosts dramas, dance and music performances.
For today’s purpose, it’s the cultural wing we are the most interested in. Week on week you’ll find a wide array of events ranging from musical performances to cultural plays at the Nehru Centre. This time around there’s a classical music event too.
The Music Summit 2016 will expose you to an evening of Odissi dance and a scintillating Flute Recital by the maestro himself, Pandit Hari Prasad Chaurasia. If music is not your thing, you can catch Rasik Dave’s Gujarati play Reshmi Tezaab. The two day Indian Music Festival which commences on the ninth of December will also be held at The Nehru Centre. The Indian Music Festival gives you a chance to immerse yourself in a world of Sufi music and Ghazals; so don’t forget to book your tickets with us.
Immerse yourself in the cultural experiences you’ve maybe evaded until today. Get going!
