Escola de Musica (Music
An integral part of the goan lifestyle, music played an important role in rural and urban Goa.
In days gone by, all the children of affluent Goan families were taught music from a very tender age. Those who couldn't afford a tutor at home went to the music school where the 'Maestre' or teacher conducted his classes. The violin, guitar and piano were popular instruments which came in as a direct European influence.
The rhythm of the goan life, its harmony and everyday's passage of time has been retold in the form of song and dance over the years and forms an integral part of the festivities no matter how small.
