of Indian Music & Dance
The Department of Indian Music and Dance was set up under the School
of Indian Music and Fine Arts in 1975 to probe further into the different
expressions of Indian Culture. Today, it has established itself as
a department operating up to the Tertiary level for the promotion of Music
and Dance. It contributes
to the world of Performing Arts, both at national and international levels.
The Department has also helped project the pluricultural Mauritius by initiating activities that bring interaction of east, west and local musical instruments. It also contributes to the cultural life of the country by helping the socio-cultural organisations during their cultural events. Members of staff regularly participate in major performances undertaken by the Institute on such occasions as National Day Celebrations, National festivals and International Conferences.
