Below is our offical statement following Arts Council England's decision to cut 100% of its funding from April 2012.

If you've been touched by the AMC's work over the past twenty years, please show your support in the following ways:

Welcome to our brand new website! We've given amc.org.uk a fresh look and hope you find it easy to navigate, quick to get used to, and good-looking too. You'll find enhanced information on our Museum of Asian Music in West London and up-to-date details in our Concerts and Education sections. There's also an entirely new area, World of Asian Music, which we're hoping will grow into one of the leading portals for information on Asian music, performers, instruments and genres on the web.

Pandit Ulhas Kashalkar, Pandit Suresh Talwalkar and Ajay Joglekar departed London today for Kolkata and Mumbai after a successful stay in Europe, where they gave concerts in the UK  and abroad and taught at the AMC Winter School 2011. The courses in khyal singing and tabla were well-attended (by participants aged three years upwards!) and the London concert was a sold-out success. We look forward to welcoming the musicians back again in future. 

To kick-start its twentieth anniversary year (1991 – 2011), the Asian Music Circuit is delighted to present a special one-off concert of Indian classical music from Pandit Ulhas Kashalkar, accompanied by Pt. Suresh Talwalkar (tabla) and Ajay Joglekar (harmonium) at the Asian Music Circuit’s Museum.

As part of its special twentieth anniversary celebrations, the Asian Music Circuit is delighted to present MUMBAI JAZZ. This exceptional global jazz tour fusing Indian and western music visits four leading venues across the UK and Europe, April 2011.

On 2nd July 2008 the Asian Music Circuit was honoured to have Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall visit their new multimedia centre in Acton, West London. This was a tremendous achievement for the AMC and marked its unique place in the world of music in the UK and beyond. The sound of two South Indian 'nadaswaram' accompanied by the 'thavil' drum welcomed the royal couple on this auspicious occasion for the AMC.
