Over two weekends of February 2023, The Bhavan, London hosted the very first instalment of a unique festival centred on the youth artists currently training at The Bhavan.
The Bhavan’s resident teachers in various subjects presented their disciples, showcasing the intensive training they receive in Indian Classical Art genres.
The festival took place on 11, 12 and 19 February. The first day saw students of Hindustani Vocal, Tabla and Sitar performing. The second day showcased students of Karnatic vocal, Veena, and Karnatic Violin, and the final day saw a dance extravaganza featuring upcoming talents of Odissi, Kathak and Bharatanatyam.
The audience and students were thrilled with the performances.
Through this festival, The Bhavan aims to give a platform to upcoming students who have already achieved a certain level of proficiency and are forging ahead in their path, and potentially enter the world of the performing arts as strong artists.
