Festival Committee vice-chairperson and art critic Kedar Mishra stated that the festival was launched last year here “as an annual union of the global Odissi family in the land of Odissi” by Odisha's two-decade old cultural forumSamskritiki. The five-day event received rave response with nearly 300 delegates from 19 countries participating in the global meet, he said. Styles of all prominent Odissi gurus would be duly represented in it.
