The Darbar Festival proactively seeks to ensure representation of a diversity of artists in its artistic programming, digital work and music education. In particular, it seeks to ensure women from all backgrounds are represented. Men, however, men continue to dominate Indian classical music and women can face disproportionate challenges in trying to make a career in a highly patriarchal society. We talk to Darbar’s female artists about their own journeys, insights and experiences.
