We asked about the focus on traditional & classical music genres, Nina said, “My key objectives are to connect with relevant music festival producers, organisations and groups to build on vital dialogues which reinforce international presence, touring, production and exchange for Indian classical music, both traditional and new works – live, studio and digital. I believe heritage is a universal value the more we engage, the more we evolve”
