Amsterdam India Festival (November 2008)

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on September 12, 2008

In November 2008 the Concertgebouw organises a spectacular festival which is devoted to India, together with a number of cultural organisations in Amsterdam. Reason for this is the significant role India takes in the world, while in the Netherlands this fascinating country is relatively unknown.

The Amsterdam India Festival proudly presents an all-round cultural pattern-card with dozens of events in the areas of music, dance, fashion, photography, theatre, art, architecture and multi-media. Theme of the festival is Blended Cultures, referring to the large variety of the different cultures which live together in India. A diversity which can also be found in the city of Amsterdam.

A small peek in the festival program:

* Percussion, acrobatics and spectacular dance
* A raga-night and devotional soefi-music
* (bollywood)movies and scenes from the epos Mahabharata
* Theatre and musical crossovers with DJ’s and VJ’s
* Breathtaking architecture and songs from all directions
* Debate programs and contemporary art
