Indian Music

Pledge for Practice is a 30 day initiative by Taalim School and Anga Kala Kathak Academy that challenges music and dance students in the US to turn their committed daily practice into funds that support financially disadvantaged artists in India in continuing the pursuit of their artistic talent.

Beginning on March 1st and ending on March 30th, participants have spent a pledged number of hours practicing Tabla or Kathak every day and make a daily log of their completed effort. In addition, they have connected with family, friends, teachers, and community members to collect donations in support of their month of hard work.

All of this practice will be driven towards a performance that will premieres this Saturday, April 9th in a grand Virtual Recital on Taalim's YouTube channel. You can watch at this link:
