12 Days of Milap
We're fresh from the success of an incredible programme of events to celebrate Diwali last month, and we see no sense in slowing down...so we're delighted to announce our 12 DAYS OF MILAP programme launching in under 2 weeks!
'12 DAYS OF MILAP' is a series of daily surprises - fresh content and exciting performances, showcasing the best of Indian music and dance.
Each day a new door will be unlocked on Milap's virtual Advent Calendar - opening to reveal a new surprise.
We'll be keeping the exact schedule under wraps but expect amazing new performances from some of the best established and upcoming practitioners in Indian Classical music and dance; premieres of a very special series of Collaborations with a special production by Arushi & Sawani Mudgal; last chances to see some of the highlights and unreleased footage from Milap's 2020 online programme; and festive treats courtesy of Anil Srinivasan & Sathyaprakash, Flute Jayanth, Kaviraj & Upneet Singh Dhadyalla, and the mischievous Beef Sappad Trio.
Alok Nayak, Artistic Director of Milap, said, "In our Diwali 2020 programme, we were able to bring an eclectic mix of performances and ideas to help you celebrate at home, while bringing you into contact with some incredible artists. Our online playlist also gives you the opportunity to dive deeper into the performances you particularly enjoyed, watch them again, and share your thoughts with us and the artists."
Since the lockdown of the entertainment sector in April 2020, we have had to change our approach to sharing our work, but the challenges have given us the opportunity to share music and dance performances beyond our physical space in England to an international audience. This will continue in the run up to the festive season, with our take on the 12 Days Of Christmas!"
12 DAYS OF MILAP launches on Sunday 13th December, at www.milap.co.uk/12days
Themed in the spirit of ‘Coming Together’, this twist on a classic festive tradition will ensure you stay in touch with the best of Indian music and dance this Christmas, helping to support Artists and the Arts, and enabling them to continue making amazing work.
