India’s various art forms which evolved over thousands of years, are not only a reflection of the diverse culture of this land but also a source of spiritual inspiration. They have enriched this nation for generations but are quickly becoming a forgotten dimension of our life. In an endeavor to preserve and promote the uniqueness, purity and diversity of the country’s performing arts, Isha Foundation annually hosts Yaksha, a three-day festival of culture, music and dance with performances by renowned artistes. Named after celestial beings in Indian mythology, Yaksha provides a platform for great artistes to perform and connoisseurs to appreciate these ancient arts performed by masters.
