This will be an opportunity for Kathak enthusiasts to interact with the founder of the Dakshin Gharana of Kathak.
CHENNAI, TAMIL NADU, INDIA, October 8, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Margazhi.org is an online platform created to bring together the culturally conscious – by integrating information, news, views and updates related to the performing arts such as Indian music & dance. It began its existence with coverage of the Margazhi festival 2011-12 in Chennai.
Margazhi – the word invokes images of tranquil moments immersed in musical bliss, noisy moments chattering over Sabha canteen tiffins, beautiful and pleasant Chennai mornings looking at kolams, rustle of silk in Sabha foyers as the culturally conscious converge to participate in different ways in the "Season". Started as a month long festival featuring concerts, seminars and dance performances, the Margazhi season now extends from mid-November to mid-January. The magic of Margazhi is special – over the years it has grown stronger and draws in culture-lovers from all over the world to Chennai – to experience the joys of the season firsthand.
By creating an online platform we want more people to stay connected with the best of Indian music and dance no matter how busy they are or how far from home they may be. We also wish to provide Margazhi.org as a platform to talk about several new initiatives being nurtured by music lovers and performers all over the world.
