qutubIn Delhi, India, things have just wrapped up at the Qutub Festival of devotional music--an annual festival celebrating both traditional and classical Indian music which includes singing and dance.

The festival is held around the Qutub Minar, a five story red sandstone tower which is one of the most celebrated monuments in India0. Originally constructed by an early Afghan invader of Northern India, the tower became a reflection of many different cultures' architectural influences.

The actual festival held around this historic backdrop lasts three days and is hosted by the Delhi Tourism and Transport Development Corporation. The festival's aim is to attempt to preserve classical Indian music as well as contemporary.

Have you ever been to India? Have you ever listened to Indian music?
