SCHEDULE 2017

A festival of Indian classical music usually conducted on the First week of January in Ahmedabad every year. This festival was inaugurated by Pt. Ravi Shankar in 1980. The musical event is organised by a public charitable trust which runs the Saptak School of Music. The festival which spans the first 11 days of January, showcases the best talents and presents as many as hundred musicians with sincere commitment to standards.

All leading vocalists as well as instrumentalists participate on this platform regularly. Some of the innovative features of this festival have been instrumental and dance ensembles, Tala Vadya Kacheri, Rajasthani and Punjabi folk music. Saptak also tries to keep alive the fading traditions of vocal music like Thumri and Dhrupad, and instruments like Sarangi and Pakhawaj by inviting the older generation of artists specializing in these fields. The students of Saptak also perform in the presence of renowned musicians, musicologists and a large appreciative audience.
