Indian Music Workshop to kick off in Hanoi
(VNF) - A free workshop on Indian music that held by the Indian Cultural Centre in Hanoi (ICC) and Indian Embassy in Vietnam on Friday (Feb. 17th) will help you understand more about the Indian music and its usage.
India is full of cultures and traditions which are reflected in Indian Music. There are two types of Indian Classical Music: South Indian Carnatic and North Indian Hindustani. Indian musical instruments can be broadly classified into four categories including Chordophones (string instruments), Aerophones (wind instruments), Membranophones (Drums) and Idiophones (non-drum percussion instruments).

The aim of this workshop is to promote the Indian bamboo flute (Bansuri) in Vietnam and to give all players and people interested in the bansuri an opportunity to learn about the flute, meet others who are passionate about the bansuri and share knowledge.
The bansuri is made from just a single shaft of bamboo with six or seven finger holes (excluding the blowing hole). The instrument is also one of the most ancient instruments used in India and is associated with cowherds and the pastoral tradition. Bansuri literally means "bamboo musical note" from the Sanskrit "bans" (bamboo) and "swar" (musical note).
The event will have musical performance by Indians artists and visitors can find out the difference between two countries’ bamboo flutes.
The workshop is open to all above 18 years of age. Children less than 18 years of age may attend if accompanied by a guardian.
Those interested may register online or directly come to the Indian Cultural Centre (63 Tran Hung Dao Str., Hoan Kiem Dist., Hanoi) from 9:30 a.m. to 17:30 p.m. (Monday to Friday)./.
