ArohaFest is the first fully bilingual festival celebrating the Arts of India in Canada, including participatory workshops, classes and demonstrations surrounding Indian music, dance, yoga and Bollywood. The event is a great opportunity for participants to gain exposure towards the various artforms hailing from India in a friendly and inviting atmosphere. Free of cost with no registration required, the two-day event is organized by Anjali Patil, founder and artistic director of Aroha Fine Arts, a not-for-profit dance organization dedicated to excellence in professional classical Indian dance. Onstage performances will feature a variety of performers, both Canadian and some from India. These will include Bageshree Vaze, a singer named a “rising star” by MTV India; Sujata Mohapatra, an Odissi dancer; Aishwarya Vijaykumar, a Bharatnatyarn dancer; Mushfiq Hashimi, a musician; and Anjali Patil herself. Participants will also have the oppurtunity to witness an art exhibition featuring the work of Indo-Canadian artists. For the onstage performances at ArohaFest, seating, while free, has to be reserved. This can be done by going online to the website.
