September’s Satrangi festival to include multicultural films, fashion, music, dance, and drama
Satrangi (seven colours), the Indian, Australian multicultural festival of performing and creative arts, is back, bigger, better and more colourful than ever.
The festival, aimed at creating the awareness of Indian music, arts, films and cultural heritage in Australia, is organised by Sangam Kala Group Australia, an independent, non-profit incorporated association affiliated to Sangam Kala Group, India.
The team at SKGA consists of liked-minded people who are keen on promoting India’s artistic and cultural traditions in Australia. Through its 18 regional chapters within Australia, SKGA aims to covering every major town within Australia.
The group recognizes that young talent in performing and creative arts is like an uncut diamond that needs the much required training, stage opportunity and recognition.
The Satrangi festival, on 21 September, is dedicated to the group’s patron, film-maker Yash Raj Chopra, who died in 2012. “We are greatly inspired by Yash Ji. His film “Chak De India” was shot in Melbourne, and that really showcased what we work for — uniting people of Indian origin as one,” says one of the organisers.
The one-day Satrangi festival will include multicultural films, fashion, music, dance, and drama. Schools, clubs and community organizations are invited to showcase their extraordinary talent to the public.
There will be over 100 solo and team performers including singers, dancers, musicians, actors, yoga, arts and meditation enthusiasts, entertainers and volunteers to rock the stage. Stalls will be on display for businesses, food caterers and service providers.
Special guests from the Federal and State government, community leaders, private business leaders and celebrities have been invited to the event.
