 Roaring Reds And Serene Oranges


by Tara Anand
Aldous Huxley said, I quote, “After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music”. A full house at the Chinmaya auditorium soaked in the wonder of just that…Sanjay Subramanyam expressing what the rest of us find humanly inexpressible...

Krishnan, and Lalgudi Vijayalakshmi, accompanied by none other than the inimitable Vidwan Trichy Sankaran on the mridangam and Tripunittura Radhakrishnan on the ghatam.

14 years in the making. This will be the 14th anniversary of the Boston Bhangra Competition. SOLD OUT for the last 13 years…3,000 person attendance….the best BHANGRA teams from North America…advertising and promotion throughout New England. This is what you will get from the 14th annual Boston Bhangra Competition.

This year should be no different.
