Kala Ghoda Arts Festival is an open air festival on a street in the heart of Mumbai’s business district with free access to programming ranging from classical music to contemporary dance, theatre to ground-breaking literature.
It was held in South Mumbai from February 4-12, the lineup included craft workshops, children’s art, dance, comedy, literature festival, music showcase and cinema screenings, etc
Like each year, My mother and I would spend hours browsing through the art work on display and trying to make sense of the installations that were put up on the street.
From what i read, it was to be the ninth edition of the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival which aimed to preserve and refurbish the heritage arts district of Mumbai, and promote awareness about traditional and emerging cultural forms.
Its always an awesome and colourful experience, each time i visit the festival. You end up meeting people from all caste, creed, strata with liking towards art, culture, music, architecture, photography, etc.
In the few hours that i spent at the festival i managed to clicked a few photographs which i will share with you.
With love towards art, music, meeting new people and getting to see amazing pieces of art work, I will surely be waiting for the next edition of Kala Ghoda Art festival next year.
