Hello Hyderabadis: can anyone suggest the best ways to learn about planned cultural highlights and events? I find that I typically only hear about concerts *after* they are held, which is very frustrating. At one point there was a fortnightly (?) magazine by the Tourist Board which had a What's On section but I haven't see it recently. Any good websites?
I see that there is a concert of Sufi music called Ruhaniyat which is held some Decembers but I couldn't find details for this year. I would love to hear some live Qawwalis. In some trips I have been lucky enough to attend some classical music concerts on Necklace Road but don't know how to find out about them. The Spic-Macay website doesn't have anything beyond October.
Any hints and suggestions much appreciated! Especially if you know of any unmissable concert.
Venue Taramati Baradari Monument(Manikonda) Schedule On Sunday, Dec 14, 2014
About Category: Music & Dance
Ruhaniyat will enliven spiritual wisdom with immortal works of some great musicians and artists. Come and listen to the most unheard but immensely talented artists from across the nation. Artists like Vaya Quartet, a band formed by four young Bulgarian singers will perform polyphony songs, Maheshara
Lamakaan is nice indeed but a very small venue. It is essentially a house with some open space around it. It has a very very reasonably priced cafe though (Tea/ lemonade Rs 10, Samosas Rs 10/- etc.). There's always something going on. I was there this Sunday.
Thank you all for the pointers! A lot of links to follow, and find music to fill the evenings. It's good that some of the venues are publishing their schedule on line, considering they keep calling this cyberabad...
