In­dian cul­ture has a long his­tory, and ev­ery year, the In­dia Mu­sic and Cul­ture Cen­ter strives to bring a taste of this rich tra­di­tion to the peo­ple of Tai­wan dur­ing the an­nual In­dia Cul­ture Fes­ti­val.

The In­dia Mu­sic and Cul­ture Cen­ter has been or­ga­niz­ing the In­dia Cul­ture Fes­ti­val in Tai­wan since 2004.

Tai­wan is be­com­ing a ma­jor cen­ter of In­dian cul­ture in Asia. In its 12th year, the fes­ti­val is tak­ing on a much grander scale in 2015.

For the first time ever, per­form­ers from six dif­fer­ent Asian coun­tries will con­verge in Taipei to present a va­ri­ety of In­dian pro­grams, in­clud­ing clas­si­cal and Bol­ly­wood dance, singing, drama and lots more.

With a theme of “in­no­va­tion and tra­di­tion,” the fes­ti­val also cre­ates a fu­sion of all the dif­fer­ent cul­tures.

There will be a con­gre­ga­tion of artists from Ja­pan, China, Hong Kong, Tai­wan and, of course, In­dia all gath­ered in the Dream Com­mu­nity Art Vil­lage, Xizhi in New Taipei City. Don’t miss this chance to ex­pe­ri­ence this great cul­tural ex­trav­a­ganza on our beau­ti­ful Isla For­mosa.

To­day the In­dia Cul­ture Fes­ti­val is of­fer­ing cul­tural ex­change sem­i­nar and per­for­mances from var­i­ous Asian coun­tries. The event is free and held at Dream Com­mu­nity, 42 HuQian St., XiZhi, New Taipei City.

The Asian In­dia Cul­tural Fes­ti­val grande fi­nale “The Leg­end of Taj” is to be held on June 20 at CKS Me­mo­rial Hall Au­di­to­rium. Tick­ets are avail­able from http:// www.art­sticket.com.tw
