Indian Cultural Fiesta In Manila, Philippines


Indian Cultural Fiesta In Manila on March 19, 2017

India is a land of cultural diversity. Its culture is uniquely depicted by its varied art forms, mainly dance and music.

Indian Classical Music & Dance forms:

Music is definitely one of the most beautiful ways of self-expression. Indian classical music has gained quite a popularity all over the globe. Moreover, our many artistes were since ages globally recognized and felicitated. The same goes true for the classical dance forms. Kathakali, Bharatnatyam, Kuchipudi, Odissi are just few names of the varied dance forms in India.

Cultural Fiesta:

We have always spoken about the Philippines, as our home away from home. Furthermore, Indian families are always trying to expose their kids to their traditions. Indians carry their cultural values in their backpacks wherever they go. Thus, the parents always make conscious efforts to have their kids absorb their cultural values too. Nevertheless, the Indian community of the Philippines strives hard to organize events showcasing their culture.

In the same light, small group of Indian enthusiasts led by an enthusiastic grandmom, Mrs Shashi Bala Saini, took initiative to organize a’Cultural Fiesta’. It is scheduled on March 19,2017 in Makati.

Here are the details of the program:

Cultural Fiesta
  • It is a cultural event for encouraging the Indian society for stage performances in the foreign land.
  • Most of the participants are ladies, basically mommies and their kids. However, Mrs Saini aspired to involve both the parents to participate in the stage show . She makes conscious efforts to make this event an ultimate family-bonding experience.
