Confluence Gala

You may (or may not) have heard of Confluence, the Festival of India in Australia. It’s a three month long cultural festival which is being supported by a number of organisations, including the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). That’s why I was invited to the Festival Gala, held last night at the Sydney Opera House.

And what a treat it was to be invited. The Gala combined traditional and contemporary music and dance from India and Australia in a way that spoke of genuine collaboration, involving performers from India, as well as local performers including those of Indian heritage, Indigenous performers, and a regular check list of some of all Australians from a range of cultural backgrounds. Best of all? Totally entertaining. Here are some photographs I snapped of the show.
