Indian, Australian artistes come together in Sydney
Indian, Australian artistes come together in Sydney [Art & Culture, IR]
As a part of the ongoing Confluence - Festival of India in Australia, artistes from across disciplines collaborated – aboriginal dancers from Australia shared the stage with the Pung Cholom dancers from India’s Manipur, and a Western a cappella group sang with Indian classical singers.
Though it was the first time that they colloborated with Indian folk and classical artistes, it came naturally.
Indigenous Australians and Indians shared a mutual respect for each other’s cultures.
It was a “proud moment for both India and Australia” that Festival of India, as announced by PM Narendra Modi in November 2014, had been successful.
The main aim of the festival was to attract the mainstream arts-loving community, not just the Indian diaspora.
