One's Life is a search engine. There is a universe of experience and realization unfurled around us. It's up to us what we search for, what we choose to seek.
Our intent guides us. If it's depth, excellence, nuance- the seeking and the journey is rich and textured.
Musiconcepts seeks the "Saccha Sur". That one true note which transcends from the material to the realm of the spiritual. In a world, replete with cacophony and commercialized music, it deep dives into the world of our layered and magnificent Musical heritage.Creating a platform that brings forth the gems of our exquisite classical and folk traditions. The stalwarts in an avatar rarely seen, and the fledgling talent spreading their wings.
The Music Retreat is an immersive musical experience. Thoughtfully and inimitably created by Musiconcepts to draw you into a world of music that will nurture your very soul.
From sunrise concerts, sundowner alaaps to masterclasses and impromptu baithkas, traverse the arch of Hindustani to Carnatic, Instrumental to Vocal.
We seek to create for the musicians and their listeners- a sacred and intimate place-to dare, explore, and form a precious musical bond.
Soak in. Let the spirit soar.

Music, in the past in India, existed only under cultivated patronage and in its own intimate environment. The public concert was unknown and the livelihood of the artiste did not depend on his or her ability to amuse the crowd. In other words, the musician was protected from commercial concerns and was under no temptation to be anything other than remain a musician free to practice and perfect his art in his specific genre. This patronage, extended by affluent families mainly of royal descent, ensured audiences for the musician, and thus, protected the art. Unfortunately, in modern times, music and its exponents, unlike the way it existed earlier in our culture, has lost it's erstwhile patronage due to commercial considerations and the all-encompassing influence of the commercial film industry and its overarching reach. At Musiconcepts, we invite modern day patrons to support our dream.
