BENGALURU: Music has no boundaries; it brings the world closer through its tunes and expressions.

In Bengaluru, this year, Indian Music Experience, an interactive and multi-sensory music museum in JP Nagar observes World Music Day with an up, close and unplugged concert by the Carnatic progressive rock band - Agam.
Agam is best known for combining complex and profound classical music notes with heavy-duty guitar solos and alluring rhythmscapes that create a fresh and versatile music experience to audience from all age groups. The up, close and unplugged series will feature a conversation with artistes tracing their journeys, creative process and influence in the first half.
