A multitude of Eastern and Northeastern Indian Classical dances like Odissi, from the state of Odisha; Manipuri, from the state of Manipur; and Sattriya, from the state of Assam performed by talented dancers from India and regional artists will enthrall the audience. Along with the classical dances, traditional folk dances from the same region, a fashion show showcasing local costumes, and live instrumentals on Bamboo Flutes and traditional drums, strings are bound to captivate and entice Houstonians in general and serious art lovers alike. The guests will be able to distinct mouthwatering regional cuisine that you won’t be able to find in any restaurant. Local and regional Chefs will be working hard to deliver traditional fare that both appeases your senses and your heart. You won’t want to miss this for anything!

The event is organized by Odissi Academy. The city of Houston supports this effort with a generous grant through the Houston Art Alliance, so do many other organizations and individual donors.
