 To have every child experience the beauty, inspiration and mysticism of Indian music and art is the aim behind SPIC MACAY. Courtesy of SPIC MACAY, students of Tagore International School, Vasant Vihar, were lucky enough to enjoy a wonderful morning listening to the melodious strains of Sufi music from the group Chaar Yaar. Led by the acclaimed Sufi singer, poet, art historian and theatre personality, Dr Madan Gopal Singh, as the name suggests, the group is a unique one comprising four musicians. Guitarist and banjo player Mr Deepak Castelino, sarod player Shri Pritam Ghoshal and percussionist Shri Amjad Khan comprise the other members of this unique group, showing us all over again that music transcends all religious boundaries. Harmony was in fact the overriding theme of the morning’s experience, leaving students with the beautiful words of Bulleh Shah, Rumi,  John Lennon, Tagore  and Kabir (among others) to inspire them. The amazing blend of rich melodies was deeply enjoyed by all.
