Indian Music Experience – India’s First Experiential Music Museum

More information has been revealed about the highly anticipated launch of Bangalore's Centre for Indian Music Experience (IME). The first of its kind in India, the Bangalore-based institution is unmatched as an arts initiative. It's an experiential music gallery dedicated to exploring India's cultural nuances through its music.

The aim of the centre is simple: to educate audiences, especially young people, about India’s rich musical diversity. An interactive space, "IME aims to encourage a rediscovery of various genres of Indian music, from the traditional to the contemporary, to create a deeper bond with music.”

Expect 8 thematic spaces which include an instruments gallery with over 200 items, performance venues, learning spaces and several computer-based interactive installations that allow the visitor to experience the process of music-making.

In addition to being a museum, the centre aims to be at the forefront of delivering curriculum-based music education with the development of music teaching aids for both private and government schools.

Housed in a 50,000 sq ft building, the IME museum will be located on a 2-acre property with a 500-person capacity venue adjacent to it.
