TAAL TARANG is deployed in two poles of activities: the spectacle pole on the one hand, which supports artists in their desire to dive into the heart of tradition, to appropriate its rigors to make its freedom ...

 

 

as well as in their creative impulses which push them to encounters, to fusion and to the discovery of unknown spaces where they seek their own reflections within the other.

 Our artists perform in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Norway and India. TAAL TARANG offers master classes and conferences at the Cité de la Musique Marseille, CNSM Lyon, Conservatoire de Brive La Gaillarde, Uni Mail Geneva, Neuchâtel Switzerland, AKDT Belgium and IKM University Oslo. The association is in charge of school interventions within Colleges and High Schools.

On the other hand, the training pole: Indian Arts Academy, which is committed to responding to the demands of students invested in Indian arts and which is the link between European students and 'authentic' Indian masters.

This pole is in charge of offering a diploma validated by Pracheen Kala Kendra, Chandigarh and Indian masters, intended to reward the talent, commitment and dedication of young students.


Mehfil Festival

Poster Festival Mehfil 4ème édition 2019

 

 The Mehfil festival, created in 2016, is the highlight of our activities, a moment of celebration and sharing that offers the best of our creations and artistic encounters to a wider regional audience. This multidisciplinary event brings together dance, music, conferences, exhibitions and workshops.

 

The objective of this festival is to make Indian, classical and popular culture known in its authenticity. It aims to create a link between Indian masters, artists based in Europe, practicing Indian arts, and the students of Taal Tarang - Indian Arts Academy.

 

With these encounters, the festival represents not only a moment of exceptional performances, but also a high point of pedagogy.
