Music and dance from Korea will be the focus on Saturday at The Hindu Friday Review November Fest, which will be staged at the Kerala Fine Arts Hall from 7.30 p.m.
Titled ‘Wild Beats', this is a combo of dance, music and theatre, something that is traditional and close to the hearts of Korean people.
Rhythmic Korean percussion steeped in tradition, this art form has been handed down from generation to generation.
There is music from the double headed drums, there is dance and history too in the movements and songs, with men and women in colourful attire. It has a universal appeal. Dulsori means heartbeat of the land. Both the men and women drummers display acrobatics while they play.
Hindi music is always a passion with the young and the old. Pancham Unmixed is R.D. Burman at his best down the ages which will be staged on Sunday. Pancham Unmixed consists of Srinivas, Chinmayi, Haricharan and Shweta Mohan performing anchored by Brahmanand Singh. Tickets are priced at Rs. 300/200/100. Student passes are available at 50% discount on least denomination on production of ID/photocopy at the venue on the concert days.
Season passes are available for Rs. 700/Rs. 500. Besides the venue, tickets are available at Coffee Beanz (Panampally Nagar and Marine Drive) and The Hindu Office (Vytilla).
