About Indian Music Group
Established in 1973, the Indian Music Group has been celebrating the beauty of Indian Music with the wholehearted participation of the student body of St. Xavier’s College in encouraging our rich and cultural heritage through the presentation, promotion and documentation of Hindustani and Carnatic Music that has been resonating within the stone walls of our heritage structure, creating an Indian ambience since the last 40 years. The IMG, as it is popularly called, saw its inception in December 1973 and its fulfillment in the next year under the direction of the then Principal, Fr. Lancy Pereira S.J. and Ustad Allarakha Khan, when a music library was established. Today, the IMG Music library houses an enviable collection of live (at IMG concerts), as well as pre-recorded music of present day artists and maestros of yesteryear and some old and rare records of 78 r.p.m along with a collection of books on classical music that are available to members. As part of its promotional efforts, the IMG conducts a two-day Young Artist Festival (YAF), providing a platform for promising young artists and other major annual concerts such as the Fusion Concert, Malhar Ke Prakar, Birthday Concert and May Concert. We also host monthly baithaks, mini baithaks and Music Appreciation Courses (MAC). Our flagship event is Janfest, a two-day musical extravaganza held in January within the pristine gothic architecture of St. Xavier’s College. We have played hosts to great maestros such as Pandit Ravi Shankar, Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, M. S. Subbalakshmi, Ustad Zakir Hussain, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, Pandit Shivkumar Sharma, Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia and the likes, attracting music lovers from across the country
