Continuing the growing cultural representation of North-East India, a festival of one of the most beautiful places in the country – Tawang is doing its bit to promote the culture of its home state – Arunachal Pradesh.
Last week The Sherp introduced the socially conscious festival of ‘Where Have All The Flowers Gone?‘ , as the festival aims to inspire people through music in the town of Imphal in Manipur. Now in its fourth year, the Tawang Festival, that is a three-day show of cultural activity, too, in similar vein, attempts to put up a gorgeous show of the highly underrepresented culture of Arunachal Pradesh, the north-eastern most state of India.
Happening from the 1st of May to the 3rd, the festival, taking place after the Buddha Mahotsav, brings together art, music, fashion, films and exhibitions, in tandem with Tawang’s local culture. Add to this the almost surrealistic beauty of the town, and you have a festival you’ll be itching to attend again and again!
