Kala Ghoda Festival

The Kala Ghoda Arts Festival is a yearly event in Mumbai.  The festival gives a little excited mood to the otherwise busy city.  The festival started in 1999 in the area of south of Mumbai around area of Kala Ghoda (Black Horse).

This year it was organized from 4th – 12th February 2012.  The festival brought performing artist from various parts of India specially Rajasthan and Orissa.  They performed cultural programmes on the stage and the streets near to Kala Ghoda.  There are many sub events which engage the city during this time.

The festival also brings together artist doing different art forms with their work which they are willing to sell.  A major part of the area also holds exhibitions by NGOs working towards welfare of the society.

I leave with some pictures of art work done by artist.  Some of them have themes, but the biggest attraction this year was “The Crow”
