Last year's concerts give 3 new reasons that you should go to watch the performers of this one - they aren't overrated, they don't lip-synch, and they don't make you pay for the above two. Yes, the Festival of Andhra Pradesh has some of the greatest names in Indian music here this week, and it's free!

The music lovers of the twin cities are having a gala time, as the likes of shehnai maestro Ustad Bismillah Khan, sitar exponent Ustad Shahed Parvez, tabla legend Ustad Zakir Hussain, sitar player Asad Khan and flautist Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia perform at this 8-day extravaganza at the Necklace Road.

The Department of Tourism is organizing the festival, and the noted ghazal singers like Hariharan and Pankaj Udhas are likely to perform. Besides the series of programs, the Department Of Tourism has also planned to highlight the cultural richness of Andhra Pradesh. Various traditional items, folklore, literature and dance programs are scheduled at this festival, titled the Andhra Janapada Sahitya Padya Nataka Nritya Hasya Vaibhavam.

The Department Of Tourism has specially scripted a Kuchipudi dance ballet called the 'Andhra Kala Vaibhavam' for the festival. One of the highlights of the festival will be the percussion ensemble featuring Ustad Zakir Hussain on the tabla, Vikku Vinayakaram on the ghatam, and Sivamuni and Selva Ganesh on their drums.

The festival will be inaugurated by G Kishan Rao, Director, Department Of Tourism, and will include a Carnatic recital by M Balamurali Krishna and mohanaveena by Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt. The entry to all the above programs is free. Please contact Raghava Rao at 345-2492 for further details.
