The performance, titled 'Bharat Vadya Darshanam' or 'Musical Journey of India,' will be presented by the 'Gaandharva Aatodyam' group and will take centre stage during the ceremonial dinner hosted by President Droupadi Murmu in honour of the G20 leaders on September 9.
Conceptualized by the Sangeet Natak Akademi, the presentation will feature an array of Indian classical musical instruments, including santoor, saranagi, jal tarang, and shehnai.
In a celebration of India's diverse musical heritage, a virtuoso ensemble of instrumentalists, each representing various classical and contemporary music styles, is set to enthral world leaders attending the G20 Summit.
It promises to showcase prominent musical styles, such as Hindustani, Carnatic, folk, and contemporary music, all of which encapsulate India's rich musical tapestry.
