The first community pursuit of its kind, 'Music in the Park' will be presented just in time for Holi, the festival of colours this Friday, the 22nd of March at 4pm. Intended as a celebration of the festival of spring, the event will include activities of music, dance and art. You can expect Hindustani, folk and Bollywood music, rhythm and Kathak and contemporary dance, and even live painting by local artists.
'Music in the Park' is the brainchild of the Malhaar Centre for Performing Arts in association with the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC.) More than 30 local artists, adults and children from Malhaar Centre for Performing Arts will be performing traditional musical compositions, adding to the community-centric ideals behind the event. The Malhaar Centre is planning to host even more 'Music in the Park' events in parks across the UAE and encourage locals in the art community to make their talents known for a day of fun.
“Malhaar aims to make this theme-based concept a regular feature by taking Indian music to the park, in the midst of nature, and involving the local community and showcasing their talent,” says Jogiraj Sikidar, founder and director of Malhaar Centre for Performing Arts.
"Since this is the Year of Tolerance and so many nationalities coexist here in what is essentially our home away from home, we would like to blend the national theme of the country with music, dance, harmony and peace," added Jogiraj.
