The Monsoon Festival is back

Banyan Tree Events’ National Monsoon Music Festival is scheduled for July 27 at Chowdiah Memorial Hall at 6 p.m. The fest, titled Barkha Ritu, will feature stalwarts from Hindustani classical music like Devaki Pandit (vocal) and Pt.

This is the sixth Barkha Ritu fest, held in Bangalore.

After receiving overwhelming responses and spectacular success in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Poona and Hyderabad , Banyan Tree will present the biggest all India monsoon music festival “Barkha Ritu - Celebrate Rains Celebrate Life...2008” that will feature a combination of upcoming maestros and today’s legends in the field of Indian Classical music.
