Vic Hua Hin Hosts 2-day ‘Global Olympiad’ of Indian Performing Arts

On 25, 26, and 27 of December, the Vic Hua Hin theatre will be host to a spectacular showcase of music, dance, and drama from India.

The arts group Akhil Bharatiya Sanskutik Sangh, more easily pronounced (and remembered!) as ‘ABSS‘ is bringing a phenomenal performance competition for the 2nd year in a row.

I myself saw this show last year at Patravadi Theatre in Bangkok, and it is simply phenomenal! If you love good music and dance, Indian or otherwise be there!

The variety of music and dance is astonishing, the quality ranges from high to superb (okay, there were a few klunkers. But not many). And the sheer vibrancy and color of the costuming will wow you if nothing else does.

Vic Hua Hin welcomes ABSS’s Global Council of Arts & Culture India with the Global Cultural Olympiad 2011. This contest of dance and music will be held for the first time in Hua Hin. Primary and secondary schools, colleges, art institutes and cultural centers from all over India are taking part in this festival. 250 artists are participating with over 100 programs.

During the Olympiad music such as classical, folk as well as modern, instruments such as sitar, flute, keyboards, Indian classical dance forms like Bharatnatyam, Kathak, Mohiniattam, Kuchipudi, Satriya and Folk as well as modern fusion dance styles will be presented.

The 2011 Olympiad will be held for the first time at Vic Hua Hin. Everybody is welcome to come in at any time of the program and enjoy the Indian culture:

  • Sunday, 25th December 2011, 9.30 am – 10 pm
  • Monday, 26th December 2011, 9.30 am – 10 pm.

Admission free, no reservation necessary.

    India as a country has made it big in many fields of art like music or movies, dancing and painting etc. It remains home for some of the best talents that the world has ever seen. All these artists today have made a mark on the international front owing it to their skills and religious practice. They have taken the Indian art, culture, music and dance beyond geographic boundaries. In case of the Indian singers, their soothing voices have reached out to and won many hearts globally. When it comes to Bollywood Hindi music, old is gold proves to be true. Eminent composers and singers like Mohammed Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, S.P. Balasubramaniam etc. have created music that everyone loves to listen to even today. .
