REPORT ON SPIC MACAY PROGRAM

SPIC MACAY
Society for the Promotion of Indian Classical Music and Cultural Amongst Youth, famously known as SPIC MACAY visited DME on 27th August, 2015. Their team comprising of Prof. Vaidyanathan and Karan Nanda conducted an inspiring workshop for the promotion of Indian heritage. The special emphasis on the need for preserving our heritage and culture motivated the students to analyze the importance of Indian heritage. Mr. Karan Nanda also gave special mention to a number of former artists and minstrels who has contributed immensely to the musical fraternity.
Their motivating speeches were followed by the transcendent Kathak Performance by the National and International award winner Smt. Rani Khanam and her musical team. She was the first Indian to perform choreography on the blend of Hindu and Islamic rituals of the Mughal times. Her performance mesmerized the audience with the unique repertoire of sacred representation of Indian Heritage. The resplendent “Jugalbandi” between Rani Khanam’s Ghungroos and the table beats by Tabla Maestro Amaan Ali Saheb created an ambience of complete emotional stimulation leaving the audience awestruck. Her performance radiated devotion proving that Kathak is not just a passion, but a prayer. She portrayed different gestures that represented the beauty of nature and also the sanctified bond between Lord Krishna and Radha.
After the SPIC MACAY team successfully inculcated the spirit of Indian classical music and art among the students, the session was closed by the vote of thanks extended by Principal Academics Dr. Prof Vikram Dutt.
