Lok Gatha Utsav was a display of the rich heritage of folk music, dance and art in India. IGNCA deftly fused the essentially folk culture festival with the modern. Star performers such as Mohit Chauhan, Hans Raj Hans and Manoj Tiwari also participated in the event.
IGNCA at Janpath is holding an exhibition on religious and theatrical practices that have evolved out of Ramayan. They have tried to capture glimpses of Ram Leela that have transcended space and time. Aptly named “Leela”, the display looked great from outside. Consequently, although we were there to attend the festival “Lok Gatha”, we gravitated to the exhibition hall.
