New Delhi, January 11, 2019: One of India’s biggest classical performing arts festivals, the Swami Haridas-Tansen Sangeet Nritya Mahotsava, presented by HCL Concerts and Bharatiya Sangeet Sadan started yesterday. This is the 18th edition of the festival, aimed at reviving and promoting interest in India’s traditional art forms -- both musical and performing arts, particularly amongst the younger generation.
The four-day long festival will witness performances by legendary artists till January 13th, 2019 at the Sir Shankarlal Hall, Modern School, Barakhamba Road, New Delhi from 6:30pm onwards. This year’s festival started with a performance by the veteran Kathak dancer Uma Sharma, followed by the renowned vocalist Parveen Sultan and also witnessed a percussion act by Tabla maestro Bickram Ghosh.
