New Delhi, May 4 (UNI) The Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute (SICI), a bilateral organisation funded by both the Government of Canada and the Government of India, is organising a bi-national concert, HARMONY, to showcase Canadian scholars studying different dance forms and vocal and instrumental music in India.

Seven Canadian scholars of performing arts now learning with their gurus in different parts of India will come together on May 8 at the well-known Sri Ram Centre for Arts and Culture here.

The scholars will showcase dances like Kathak, Odissi, Chhou, and two of them will play the Flute and Tabla,while one will perform Hindustani Classical, a Canadian High Commission release said here today.

''HARMONY not only showcases the growing interest of Canadian scholars in the various art forms of India, it will also lead to deepening of cultural bonds between Canada and India,'' said Mr Kenneth Macartney, the Deputy High Commissioner of Canada.

HARMONY is being held under the aegis of the India Studies Programme of SICI. Under this Programme, fellowships are provided to Canadian scholars, librarians and artists for research activities and Indian publications are supplied to Canadian universities.
