The tone has been set for the 2006 edition of Bengalooru Habba, with the pre-Habba awareness programmes gathering steam in 15 schools and colleges across Bangalore.

The awareness programmes – which cover classical music and dance apart from lecture demonstrations – kicked off on November 17 and will run till November 29. Artistes’ Foundation for the Arts (AFFA) is organising the awareness programmes in association with the Society for Promotion of Indian Classical Music and Culture.

Padmini Ravi, Managing Trustee, AFFA told Deccan Herald on Saturday that artistes of international repute, including Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhat (Hawaiian guitar), Shiv Kumar Sharma (Santoor) and U Rajesh (Mandolin) were involved in the pre-Habba awareness programmes.

“There will also be a series of street theatre performances at multiple locations which will kick off on November 27 and run up to December 10. Under the Umbrella Art programmes, upcoming artistes will do live art at multiple locations,” she said.

Street magic acts will also be performed as part

of the pre-Habba campaign, that will run up to the

close of the Habba, on December 10.

Talent showcase

The Bengalooru Habba will be held in Bangalore between December 3 and 10, with this year’s edition focussing on promotion of regional talent.

State’s arts

A book fair, art and crafts display will showcase Karnataka’s arts through the 50 years. A showcase of literary works by Jnanapith awardees, traditional Kannada theatre performances and a food festival (at Palace Grounds) will also be a part of the Habba.

Palace Grounds will host the best names in classical dance and music from across India. The Habba will also feature a Bollywood night, a fashion show and a day-long rock and jazz music performance. Folk and tribal visual arts will also be exhibited. For details, log on to www.bengalooruhabba.com
