Bengali Music gained immense popularity in tandem with the unmatched brilliance of the renowned Gurudev Tagore. Bengali Music, in its original form, has its roots in the Indian state of West Bengal. An enthusing traditional form of Music, Bengali Music is widely acclaimed as amongst the most soothing and fascinating forms of art. Particularly known for its inherent diversity, Bengali Music consists of four forms: Rabindra Sangeet, Raga Pradhan, Nazrul Geeti and others. The emotional and uplifting quotient infused by Bengali Music in its purest form is perhaps second to none.

Levels Taught: Foundation, Diploma, Post-diploma.
