ARTISTS Ila Arun
This is the first presentation of their series of the folk dance platform, Lok Gatha. Based on the theme of snakes, the dance form Kalbelia - which is a part of UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage list and the Nag Mantri ka Jagran will be showcased.

The evening would be guided by eminent Rajasthani folk singer Ila Arun in association with expert from Lokkala Academy, University of Mumbai. A proficient on folk traditions and fine arts Ilaji will be taking us through the different folk tales of India where snakes play a pivotal role and also enlightening the audience about the conspicuous snake culture of India.

Both the traditions, Kalbelia and Jagran are performed in honor of Lord Shiva. Kalbelia is a nomadic community, whose traditional occupation is snake charming. Pungi or Been is a special instrument of Kalbelia community used to enchant snakes. The main performers of Kalbeliya dance are female dancers who dance and swirl, replicating the movements of a serpent. Jagran is a celebration in which Shiva devotees observe an all-night vigil, sing devotional hymns and songs and play music on instruments made of copper and brass. Tales on different avatars of Lord Shiva are enacted during the night.
