Join us for the second edition of KALYANI, a two-day festival that celebrates the contribution of women to Indian visual and performing arts.
This year, KALYANI goes digital, with an exciting line-up of art workshops and performances themed “Singaar”, which connotes romance, beauty, elegance and eroticism, from the mundane to the divine. Artists featured include:
Juthika Barman – a young folk singer from Assam accompanied by an all-female band that will regale you with songs of the hills of North East India.
Parvathy Baul – a Baul folk singer from the state of Bengal presenting songs of divine romance and universal love.

KALYANI is jointly presented by In Harmony Arts & Culture, the Consulate General of India and Asia Society Hong Kong Center and curated by MeMeraki and brought to you by the kind sponsorship of Mrs. Purviz R. Shroff and the Late Mr. Rusy Shroff.
