BASC Artist inset workshops

South Asian art is music, dance, craft and literature from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, the four countries which constitute South Asia.

The dances of South Asia have their origins from different regions. They can be classical dances such as Bharata Natvam and Kathak or the Folk dances such as Garba, Bhangra and Kandyan Folk dance.

The music of South Asia can be classical or folk and can be either vocal or instrumental. The tabla, sitar and harmonium are well known instruments throughout the subcontinent, and Qawwali is a very popular musical form in Pakistan.

Literature in the form of poetry e.g. Mushaira, Kavi Sammelan and various forms of craft work, including painting, calligraphy, henna painting and cloth painting, go to make up the colourful art forms of South Asia.
