In a city identified with ghazals and qawalis, can concerts and dance recitals be far behind? Dance and music or art itself is celebration of peace, of life and when it happens in Hyderabad, the city of opportunities, as exemplified by its IT sectors, a city of the grandeur of life, as suggested by its pseudonym, city of pearls, it becomes all the more worth looking forward to.Look up on the internet, search on the local newspapers or check with your hotel staff, there is always one or the other event going on in the city. Choose your pick from it or from the ones listed below:


  • Taramati Music Festival

    May be its the romantic anecdote associated with the seventh
     Sultan of Golconda, Abdullah Qutb Shahi, the sweetness of her voice or the gracefulness of her skilled movements, this festival has been dedicated to Taramati, a courtesan of the 17th century. Earlier years have seen famous personalities like Dr. Ananda Shankar Jayant, Ustad Zakir Hussain and Ustad Sultan Khan performing for the audience. Organised by the Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation Limited for 3 days, it is a celebration of the continuation of Hyderabad’s rich heritage.
