About Kala Coast Music Festival 2019
16th Feb :
Bandish 20 se 20000 Hz Tak
A theatrical production by Aarambh Mumbai, written and directed by Purva Naresh with the music composed by Shubha Mudgal, ‘Bandish’ opens with a situation wherein a green room 4 artists come face to face with each other. Two are yesteryears diva and the other two are young heartthrobs of the nation. They are all set to participate in an event celebrating 70 years of Independence in small-town India.
Soon crisis begins to emerge. The male heartthrob of the nation gets banned because of an antinational badge. The Second crisis emerges when there is a power failure. The third crisis emerges when the last option Beni Bai refuses to sing.

About Kala Coast
Kala Coast is a center for Music and Fine Arts at Karje near Brahmavar, situated in the Udupi district of coastal Karnataka. While showcasing the diversity that Indian Music and Arts have to offer, Kala coast believes in the spirit of collaboration, being a unique attempt of bringing together musicians, artists, connoisseurs and all those engaged in music and arts under one roof, to perform, practice, profess, interact, discuss, explore and exchange their skills.
A Music & Fine Arts academy based on the Gurukul tradition coordinated with innovative systems of pedagogical practices, a well equipped Arts library and Archiveal Gallery, an Amphitheatre and Open Stage for hosting varied events is some of the proposed structures complementary to facilitating such activities at Kala Coast. A residential township of artistes initiates them to get involved in performances, workshops, interactive sessions, and the music and arts education and rejuvenation programmes designed by Kala Coast from time to time.
Kala Coast also aims at empowering artists and protecting their rights, while also bringing forth talent from different regions and supporting them in every way possible.
The activities of Kala Coast are spread across cities in India, gradually intending to widen its scope globally.
