Celebrating Monsoon with ‘Malhaar Festival’

August 21, 2010

Delhi has been waiting for such splashing monsoon since very long. These dripping wet days and nights have called for revels and festivities. Taking the opportunity of this drenched weather, Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) is organising the ‘Malhaar’ festival on 23rd and 24th, August, 2010 at Azad Bhavan Auditorium, I.P Estate.

This festival will celebrate spirit of monsoon with dance and music. The two day event will showcase the Light Classical, Kathak, Sarangi and Sitar performances to set the mood of rains. The first day will see the performances of ‘Light Classical’ by ‘Malashri Prasad’ and ‘Kathak’ performance by ‘Sharmistha Mukherjee’. Sitar and Sarangi recitals will be performed on the second day of the festival by ‘Shubhendra Rao’ and ‘Ustad Kamal Sabri’ respectively. Entry for the festival is free and the performances will start from 6:30 in the evening.

The Indian culture provides a window for celebrating nature, emotions, festivals, customs and religions. This rich tradition of Indian way of life makes it stand ahead of all other civilizations across the globe.
