Experience the euphoria of a celebrated festival and the luxury of fine living
December is synonymous with music and dance and the vibrant city of Chennai, India, comes alive to a spectacular celebration famously known as the Margazhi Music and Dance season (or Madras Music Season), where more than 1500 musicians and dancers around the the world come together in Chennai to pay tribute to India’s treasured cultural legacy.
The Margazhi Music and Dance is an annual event hosted in December and January in Chennai. The festival spans six weeks and includes a collection of small and large kutcheris (music concerts) where the audience can appreciate Carnatic music by renowned artists and seeing promising young artists show their talent and skill.
A patron of art and culture in the city, Taj Coromandel adds a special touch to this extravagant festival of delightful music concerts and spell-binding dance recitals by presenting an exclusive Margazhi with Taj Coromandel offer.
This customised experience includes exclusive passes to a music concert or dance recital, an indulgent south Indian meal at the iconic Southern Spice while engaging in an enriching conversation with a renowned musician and dancer about the rich history of this festival.
With a stylish makeover, Taj Coromandel presents a rich fusion of south Indian warmth and classic elegance that echoes the deep-rooted culture and heritage of Chennai.
