The Berklee India Exchange EXPLORE Series continues this fall with yet another immersive workshop exploring Indian music and culture. This September, we feature the Anirudh Varma Collective presenting their workshop, "Perspectives: A Contemporary Exploration and Presentation of Hindustani Classical Music" with their touring ensemble.
This workshop is free and open to the Berklee community and general public.
The Anirudh Varma Collective (AVC) is a contemporary Indian classical ensemble from New Delhi, India. It is led by pianist, composer, and producer, Anirudh Varma. The Collective comprises over 150 musicians and artists from across India, America, and Canada. Their attempt is to bring the rich tradition of Indian Classical music out of a niche viewership to a larger global audience, through convergence with diverse genres but keeping it rooted in its pure form. AVC has released two full-length albums, Perspectives (2018) and Homecoming (2022), which have staged more than 500 performances. The ensemble has performed at festivals in both India and abroad such as the Jaipur Literature Festival, Mahindra Kabira Festival, Nita Ambani Cultural Centre, Mumbai (NMACC), Virasat Festival as well as the Festival of India in Kuwait and Maldives to name a few.
