Kala ghoda Art Festival 2014


One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
-Bob Marley 

They say music binds, heals, unshackles, enlivens and elevates aspects of self that one hasn’t discovered yet. Many artists, philosophers and religious leaders believe that music will propel the awaited changes in the world. This year at Kala Ghoda Arts Festival enjoy the melodies of artists across experimental genres. The performances would be held at Cross Maidan and at The Asiatic Library Steps. Our thematic for the 2014 festival is 'CRESCENDO’. Be part of our world and look out for the upcoming programs in this exciting section by joining our facebook community.
