Chennai Sangamam

Tamil Mayam has a series of events planned for the month of February. Called the Chennai Sangamam (and with a neat tag line too – Thiruvizha, Namma theru Vizha), the festival hopes to get more people hooked on to local performing arts, street theatre, art and music. It’s on between the 20th and 26th of this month, so make sure you catch it.

I caught a whole troop of drummers and dancers on board an MTC bus this morning to work – and they can sure beat up a ruckus. The music is fantastically sprightly. If this is the way they perform on the way to their performance… Chennai Sangamam has a fascination for parks, I gather. I found a group of Kalari dancers in Mylapore’s Nageswara Rao Park. There’s something happening at T. Nagar’s Natesan Park. And, oh, Lavanya, a fellow metroblogging author points me to their website –

Be sure to catch it, and if you got photos of the event, do post it to the Metroblogging Chennai Flickr Group
