A city brimming with great history and melodic music, Gwalior holds an important place in the heart of incredible India. It is dotted with plain and hilly landscapes which transform into a lush green carpet as the monsoon approaches. Gwalior is best known for its imposing hilltop fort, which was famously described as 'The pearl amongst fortresses in India'. The city stands as the testimony of dynasties that ruled over the decades. Their influence is clearly seen in the many regal structures that dominate the cityscape. In a sense, Gwalior continues to retain a medieval majesty.
Gwalior holds an unparalleled taste and popularity in Hindustani Classical Sangeet, and has retained Indian traditions and the wealth of music intact over the years. The Gwalior Gharana is one of the oldest and prominent Khayal Gharanas. Legendary musicians like Tansen and Baiju Bawara belonged to Gwalior and sang for the royal court of Gwalior.
The melody of classical Indian music can be best witnessed in Tansen Samaroh which is organised to pay a tribute to the legendary musician and a master of classical music, Tansen. The soul-stirring performances bring the evening alive. The aim is to celebrate the true essence of music and enjoy the melody that comes with each unique performance during the festival. Every year, the event is being organised from 26th- 30th Dec at different venues of Gwalior.
