Spic Macay Chapter at IIM Bangalore

SPIC MACAY (Society for the Promotion of Indian Classical Music And Culture Amongst Youth) is a non-political, nationwide, voluntary movement founded in 1977 by Dr. Kiran Seth, Professor-Emeritus at IIT-Delhi who was awarded the 'Padma Shri' for his contribution to the arts in 2009. SPICMACAY's intention is to enrich the quality of formal education by increasing awareness about different aspects of Indian heritage and inspiring the young mind to imbibe the values embedded in it. It seeks to inspire youth through experiencing the mysticism embodied in the rich and heterogeneous cultural tapestry of Indian and World Heritage, with a hope that the beauty, grace, values and wisdom embodied in these arts will influence their way of life and thinking and inspire one to become a better human being. In 2011, SPIC MACAY was awarded the Rajiv Gandhi Sadbhavana award in recognition of its contribution to youth development.

Our flagship event is Yamini (the beautiful night) that happens on the eve of Republic Day annually. It is one of the most sought after events by every music and dance connoisseur at Bangalore. Yamini is a confluence of various Indian music and dance forms and consists of back-to-back concerts/performances by artistes of renown from all over the country. Open to all, this is one event that attracts huge crowds from every corner of the city.

SPICMACAY IIMB chapter is a registered student organization devoted to the the purpose of the promotion of Indian classical art forms with a focus on classical music and dance in Bangalore. Bangalore is a melting pot of various Indian cultures and is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in India. We also organize evening concerts at the IIM B auditorium once in two months (Virasat music concerts) and music concerts specifically dedicated for Exchange Students who visit IIMB campus.
