                                          Tansen Music Festival in Gwalior
                                                By David H. Urmann

  Gwalior is a district in Madhya Pradesh. The city celebrates a national level music festival called
Tansen. The festival is held in memory of Tansen’s great contribution to Indian music.

 Gwalior is the city in North India that lies 76 km from Agra. The city occupies a special position in
Indian music history. It is one of the places that saw through the tremendous developments in the
Hindustani Classical Music genre. Gwalior is also the home of the famous Indian musician, Miyan

 The death of Tansen is the birth of Gwalior’s Music Festival. It is also known as The Tansen Sangeeth
Sammelan. It is held in memory of Miyan Tansen. The festival is celebrated yearly during November
and December, within a span of five nights.

 Miyan Tansen was a famous musician in India and was admired by the King. He became one of the
nine jewels at Akbar’s court of the Mughal era. Emperor Akbar was believed to be the father of music.
Miyan Tansen’s fame spread when he joined Raja Ramachandra Baghela’s court.

 Tansen died in 1589, right when he was at the peak of his popularity. He was then buried in Gwalior.
His tomb serves as a great venue for his contribution to Indian music. His memorial is part of Gwalior’s
living cultural heritage. It was built in an early Mughal architectural technique.

 The Gujarat government also decided to bring up a two-day music festival in memory of Riri and Tana.
They are the two sisters who rendered Raag Meghmalhar, bringing help to Tansen’s illness. Legend
says that Tana and Riri had an interpretation of the song Megamaldhar that cured Miyan Tansen. The
king was pleased and the court musician Tansen decided to search for the two girls.

 The King asked the two girls to sing at Akbar’s court but they ended their lives in a well rather than to
refuse him. Riri and Tana did not want to cause war within their town. From then on, the government
gave importance to the two sisters in a form of a concert, particularly starting last 2003. From then on,
it was held yearly, becoming part of a tradition, to commemorate their death anniversary.
