Human beings, like our feathered brethren, are a musical species. We use sound not only as a means of communication, but to create beauty as an end in itself. This creative power of the human spirit is best exemplified in the world of musical instruments, which lies at the intersection of art and science. The interactive workshop, curated for children between the ages of 7 to 12, was designed to inspire and enrich.

Led by Krithika Sreenivasan and Sarvar Kahlon from the Indian Music Experience (IME), Bengaluru, this session took young minds through a journey of learning and discovery, where they were introduced to the world of sound through stories, instruments and the fascinating world of music and musicians. Children heard captivating stories, learnt songs and how to craft their own instruments!
