Hemantika Barcelona - Kathak Dance Festival, Barcelona, jueves, 09. noviembre 2017

Hemantika: A kaleidoscope of Kathak dance in Celebration of Autumn.
Kathak is a classical dance from the north of India. Due to circumstantial reasons, it is the only classical dance of India which has adapted to the Hindu and Muslim culture, has always united people and cultures across the globe. The dance has been a traveller by nature, as it later joined the silk route and contributed to what is Flamenco today.

The Cultural Association Nupura is extremely honoured to bring the dance festival Hemantika from London to Barcelona this year. This festival is a yearly festival in London under the sister organisation of Nupura- Sujata Banerjee Dance Company.
