Tell us about Vaibhavam experience

Nada Vipanchi featured thematic group performances in the day-long Vaggeyakara Vaibhavam festival. Admission was free. The festival was live webcast. Lunch and tea were provided by Annadata donors. Annadata sukhibhava!

The success of this year's Vaggeyakara Vaibhavam is fully due to the active involvement of teachers, performers, volunteers, patrons, and Annadata donors. Thank you, one and all.

The audience appreciated the steadfast commitment of dozens of children and adults. Participants and their gurus spent hours in planning and practicing for concerts. That was so evident from their mellifluous music. Several youth, children, and parents came forward to set-up, emcee, facilitate logistics, manage audio, ... and literally everything needed to organize the festival. Everyone's collective effort helped all of us to enjoy some great music and learn a thing or two about the context of the compositions. Such a natural participation and unconditional support will enrich our culture and arts in the RTP area for years to come.
