Indian Music Experience
March 5, 5:00 pm
Immerse yourself in India’s rich musical heritage at Bangalore’s newest and most exciting cultural hub – the Indian Music Experience (IME)!
Located in JP Nagar, South Bangalore, just 2 km from Yelachenahalli Metro Station, the IME is India’s only interactive music museum. It features a Sound Garden with 10 playable musical sculptures, Exhibit Galleries with musical instruments, storyboards, touchscreens, mini-theatres, and audio-video kiosks, a Learning Centre with regular classes and workshops, and much more. With themes ranging from the legends of Bollywood to folk music from around the country, to classical maestros and indie rock bands, the IME covers the entire spectrum of Indian music, from the traditional to the contemporary. The IME is designed to the best international standards and is housed in a beautifully constructed contemporary building surrounded by greenery. In addition, the IME houses an alfresco café, operated by the award-winning Woodrose Club, featuring a delectable selection of Indian and international fare. The Gift Store at IME features a product suite of aesthetically-crafted products that are inspired by themes from the museum.
While the IME is an ideal place for international tourists to understand India’s cultural diversity, it is equally fascinating for Indian audiences, both young and old, to reconnect with their culture and discover more about their music.
In addition to museum visits, an event calendar of regular concerts, storytelling for children, film screenings, workshops, and seminars, makes the IME a must-visit destination for culture vultures and music aficionados.
