On the eve of Republic Day, the IIMB Chapter of SPIC MACAY presents Yamini 2013, the dusk to dawn musical night at the scenic Open Air Theatre at IIM-Bangalore, featuring the doyens of Indian classical music and dance. This series of concerts brings together a selection of stars plucked from the galaxy of Indian classical music and seeks to light the night with an enchanting musical experience. IIMB SPIC MACAY invites all of you to be part of this musical assembly!
Yamini seeks to cultivate appreciation and love for classical music and dance amongst the youth in general, and the IIMB student community, in particular. The nocturnal stage of Yamini is a pageant for young and upcoming artists to perform alongside established ones and weave the magic of their artistry that has descended from generation after generation in its purest form. This year IIM Bangalore and SPIC MACAY will be hosting Yamini for the 10th year.
The Society for Promotion of Indian Classical Music And Culture Amongst Youth, (SPIC MACAY), is a nationwide voluntary and non-profit movement started in 1977 by Padmashri Dr Kiran Seth, an IIT Delhi professor. After its first concert in 1978 in IIT Delhi, it has expanded to hundreds of educational institutions spread over two hundred towns in India and fifty overseas. It conducts over 2,500 events annually, reaching out to over a million youngsters.
SPIC MACAY aims at introducing traditional Indian culture to the youth with a hope that the beauty, grace and wisdom embodied therein will become an integral part of their lives, whatever may be their dreams and aspirations.
With a stellar lineup of artists that include a Grammy-award winner & an Oscar nominee, this year promises to be a fitting celebration of this decade long festival.
