A katcheri (or kutcheri) is a gathering. In the context of Carnatic Music it is a place where people gather to listen to classical music concerts of vidwans. It is commonly used to refer to carnatic music concerts. Vocalist Ariyakudi Ramanuja Iyengar (1890–1967) established the modern kactheri (concert) traditions in Carnatic music.[1]

In British India the word was used for Zamindar's Office like modern District Collectorates.
