Varanasi
Varanasi has been chosen as a part of the ‘Cities of Music’ under UNESCO’s cultural division, the Creative Cities Network. It has been chosen in the music category under UNESCO’s “field of excellence” plan. The fields of excellence are classified into categories of literature, film, music, craft and folk art, design, media arts and gastronomy. UNESCO had added Music as its fifth cultural category in 2006 under the Creative Cities Network. The Italian city of Bologna and Spain’s Seville were the first to join the list. As a part of this list, all music cities are expected to promote musical creation and activities along with organizing concerts for the same, both at the local level as well at the international level.
