Giving Goan folk groups a boost
In order to select groups to perform for various programmes in the state, other states as well as international programmes, the Directorate of Art and Culture has invited entries of Goan folk artists for the selection trials which will be held from July 19 to July 21 at Rajiv Gandhi Kala Mandir, Ponda. The selection will start from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in folk dance, music, and songs.
The aim behind having the selection trials is to provide a platform and exposure to all Goan folk groups.
Interested groups leaders are requested to contact the department to collect the application forms. The forms are available at the office of the Directorate of Art and Culture; Ravindra Bhavan Curchorem, Margao, Baina and Sankhali and Rajiv Gandhi Kala Mandir, Ponda.
The last date for the submission of the form is today. The group should perform four best items of folk dances in traditional costumes along with live music for the selection trials. Artists will not be allowed to participate in more than one group.
