The Alpha Foundation, in association with Shri Gujarati Pragati Samaj, is organising the ICFAI Rajasthan Nite, on 23rd December, at Sri Gujarati Vidya Mandir High School, Gujarati Galli, Sultan Bazar. The famous folk music and dance troupe from Ahmedabad, the Aavishkar Group, will be performing.
Aavishkar, an academy of performing arts, was established in June 1986 with an objective of preserving the wonderful legacy of the performing folk and tribal art forms of Gujarat. It is a 16-member troupe headed by Kalpesh Babubhai Dalal, and its repertoire includes Hudo, Dandiya Raas, Janviyo Dhol Nritya, Kahalya Nritya and Garabo.
The troupe has performed extensively throughout India, and in countries like USA, USSR, France, Spain, Thailand, Turkmenistan, Muscat, Bahrain, Kuwait, Jordan, Syria and Turkey.
The Alpha Foundation, a registered charitable trust established by the Institute of Chartered Financial Analysts of India (ICFAI), has been working for the upliftment of the under-privileged population, especially children, in urban slums and rural areas through a holistic approach combining quality English medium education, nutrition, healthcare services, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, vocational training and employment opportunities.
The foundation also provides an opportunity to performing artists to showcase their talents in classical/folk music and dance through the ICFAI Music and Dance Festivals. The Foundation has plans to provide such opportunities at district, block and village levels too to revive the dying arts of India.
