Music is a language deeper than words. While Indian classical music can be improvised as desired by the performer, the Western counterpart is strictly composed like a straight-cut diamond. The merging of the two gives birth to a new form of fusion. Across Cultures is an online lecture demonstration series that examines the nuances of this fusion as well as the challenges and the future of eclectic east-west musical amalgamations. The discussions feature some of the most noteworthy musicians, academics and music enthusiasts from across the globe.
