India has been chosen to be the country of honor at the prestigious UAE Festival this year. The nation hopes to showcase the culture beyond the cliche stereotypes and ideas mainstream media often displays.
Country of Honor: A Chance to Make A Statement
Navdeep Suri, the Indian Ambassador to the UAE, stated,
“By collaborating with Abu Dhabi Festival (ADF) 2018, we hope to supplement these efforts to take Indian culture mainstream and make sure that there is a much better understanding of an India beyond Bollywood. That is why the focus is on showcasing some of India’s magnificent diversity.”
He shares the hope that India will show everyone the real beauty of India and give non-Indians a chance to appreciate a sense of culture that goes beyond society’s preconceived ideas at the biggest classical arts event in the Gulf region.
We can’t wait to see the beautiful music and colors of India displayed by the some of the country’s most well-known artists!
