Chinna Rasa Urumee Melum Masana Kali (Indian temple drummers) is a traditional arts blast ready to thrill the masses at the Panggung Pusaka@Lawn stage at the Yayasan Sime Darby Arts Festival.
Traditional folk art forms and culture in the spotlight.
THE upcoming Yayasan Sime Darby Arts Festival on Sept 13-14 is all about community and creativity as it promises to shift the spotlight to traditional folk art forms and culture. Yet it has its fair share of contemporary pop artistes to get the curious masses through the door.
This inaugural festival – with outdoor, indoor and workshop areas – will take place at the sprawling Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPac).
The entire KLPac arts complex is set to come alive with dance productions, martial arts, traditional theatre, film screenings, art market, music, open mic sessions and visual arts.
As a free admission festival, the main idea is to dedicate an entire weekend to the arts. Yayasan Sime Darby Arts Festival has curated a highly engaging programme ahead.
Nineteen performances have been handpicked by not-for-profit cultural organisation Pusaka for the Yayasan Sime Darby Arts Festival, which includes traditional masters and folk art groups.
