(Institute of Dance, Drama & Music)
Gurudeva Rabindranath Tagore always acknowledged the rightful place of music and dance in his scheme of education. He regarded the language of sound and movement to be the highest means of self-expression without which people remain inarticulate. Himself being a composer of great originality, he wrote dance-dramas, operas and more than 2000 songs to fit where human emotions come to play.
At present Sangit-Bhavana imparts training in Rabindra Sangit, Hindusthani Classical Vocal and Instrumental Music (Esraj, Sitar, Tabla, Pakhwaj), Manipuri and Kathakali Dance styles, Dramas and Tagore"s own musical Dance-dramas. For exceptionally talented post-graduates, there is scope for research. Sangit-Bhavana has been organising regular functions and festivals like Bengali New Year"s Day, Tagore Week (Rabindra Saptaha), Varshamangal, congregational services of Poush, Spring Festivals, etc.
