"I like narrative storytelling as being part of a tradition, a folk tradition" - Bruce Springsteen
There is almost a bare, innocent and soulful quality to folk music and performances. They transport us back to traditional times and simpler lives. This year at KalaGhoda enjoy the gentle sounds and stories preserved and through many generations. Adorned on either side by craftsmen and artisans selling their wares from the famous Kala Ghoda stalls - over 100 stalls to choose a variety of products from all over the country...glass art from waste, paintings, ceramics and enamel works, bags and wallets, solar lamps and clocks, cushions and quilts, shawls and ethnic sarees, mugs, clocks, staionery, footwear, jewellery, etc.- the Rampart Row will yet again become a living and thriving celebration of folk.
The street will change its mood everyday with vibrant performances by folk dancers, musicians and street plays from all over the country. Experience the amazing folk dance forms, sounds of traditional instruments and spectacular costumes as you get entertained by puppeteers, Nat artists and folk dancers.
Our theme for the Kalaghoda Festival 2013, is 'WALK THE CHANGE'. Join us at Rampart Row.
