I just got back from Chennai (Madras). The Chennai December Season has become an annual pilgrimage for me. I have been attending it almost every year since 2002!
For two months the city pulses to the sounds of music and dance. The atmosphere is magic and it is an event that every lover of Carnatic music and Indian classical dance looks forward to. This is an opportunity to see all the great musicians and dancers as well as upcoming artists.
What better way to start the year than the Madras Music Academy Dance Festival? It runs for a week at the beginning of January. The Hindu has published a series of photographs from the festival. I am featuring some here. To see more, visit the following links:
