HarmoNYom has teamed up with Rubin Museum of Art to present an exceptional Indian Classical Music Festival in New York City during April 5-7, 2013. The festival is a tribute to the late legendary Pandit Ravi Shankar.

This original festival celebrates the splendor and heritage of Indian Classical Music. Six maestros from South Asia have been invited to play in six different styles for six unique performances.

At the Music Room Festival, they will evoke the Baithak, one of South Asia’s most revered traditions. Just as centuries-old paintings depict, participants will gather cozily around visiting musicians for informal talks and intimate performances, offering a free and open exchange between artist and audience.
