The organizers of South Asians in Silicon Valley will host an exhibit Explore the wide variety of musical instruments of South Asia (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka), through paintings and photographs.Accompanying audio clips will bring the sounds of South Asia come alive.

Find out about the ‘rubab’ from Afghanistan and its probable descendant, the ‘sarod’ of India. Many of these instruments are cultivated by the South Asian diaspora in Silicon Valley. The month-long ‘Musical Instruments of South Asia’ exhibit will culminate with a half-day music program, "Sounds of South Asia," on the second floor of the library where local musicians will demonstrate vocal and instrumental music traditions.
