Geeta Bithika, an institution devoted to the propagation of Indian Music, Dance & Painting

Indian Music

Indian music is one of the oldest forms of music in the world, with a rich history that dates back thousands of years. It is deeply rooted in culture, spirituality, and tradition. Indian classical music is divided into two main traditions: Hindustani music in the north and Carnatic music in the south. Both traditions have their own distinct styles, ragas (melodic frameworks), and talas (rhythmic cycles).

Dance

Indian dance is a rich and diverse art form that encompasses a wide range of styles, traditions, and cultural influences. It plays a significant role in Indian culture and is deeply rooted in ancient religious and artistic practices.

India has several classical dance forms, each with its own distinct style, technique, and cultural significance. Some of the prominent classical dance forms include Bharatanatyam (from Tamil Nadu), Kathak (from North India), Kathakali (from Kerala), Odissi (from Odisha), Kuchipudi (from Andhra Pradesh), Manipuri (from Manipur), and Mohiniyattam (from Kerala).

Professional Painting

Indian painting is a diverse and rich artistic tradition that spans thousands of years, with influences from various cultures and regions across the Indian subcontinent. It encompasses a wide range of styles, techniques, and subjects, reflecting the cultural, religious, and social diversity of India.

Historically, Indian painting can be traced back to ancient rock paintings found in caves, such as those at Bhimbetka in Madhya Pradesh, dating back to around 10,000 BCE. Over the centuries, Indian painting evolved through various phases, including the classical period, medieval period, and colonial period, each characterized by distinct styles and themes.
