A Journey Through India Festival
The Ringling presents A Journey Through India, a three day festival exploring the many cultures of India. Created in collaboration with the local Indian community, the festival will celebrate Indian performance, food, dance, music, and art. Friday, April 26, the festival kicks off with a Bollywood dance party in the Museum of Art Courtyard. Dj Pram brings his signature high-energy style to teach dance moves while scenes from classic Bollywood films are projected around the courtyard. Enjoy local Indian fare and beverages available for purchase and a special dance performance by Bollywood choreographer Rajat “Rocky” Batta. Saturday, April 27, look forward to a day-long program of cultural exploration, including a series of lectures from scholars speaking on Indian art, literature, philosophy, and popular culture; music and dance performances by community groups; art-making and other activities for families; and a market featuring local food and artisan vendors. Saturday evening Vishwa Mohan Bhatt performs in the Historic Asolo Theater. The Hindustani classical music instrumentalist is a GRAMMY® winning artist and the creator of the Mohan Veena. He has mesmerized the world with his pristine, pure, and delicate yet fiery music. A formal reception will be held preceding this world-class performance. Sunday, April 28, the festival culminates with a free, celebratory morning Hatha yoga event on Ca’ d’Zan terrace taught by an Ishafoundation yogi. More information to follow.
