Groove to the Beats at The World Percussion Festival

Nidhi posted on 5th March

What is it?

Nothing says 'spring' like a music festival in Nehru Park. Take this opportunity to spend an evening {or two} in Nehru Park, which is in its full floral glory currently, as it thumps to the music of drums, metallophones, kendhangs, gataberas, pakhavaj and tablas.

Dance to the beats of bands from Belgium, Russia, Israel, Indonesia and Sri Lanka at the two-day World Percussion Festival. This is the third edition of the festival, organised by Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR), The Times of India and Raasrang.

Who is it for?

Percussion enthusiasts, and those with an ear for eclectic music forms and instruments from around the world!

Why Should I Go for it?

Stilt walkers, dancers, caricaturists and tattoo/face painting artists are going to make sure this is less of a music fest and more of a carnival!

Anything Else?

There’s a quaint little flea market also planned, so don’t forget to carry your wallets! It’s free entry of course.
