Soulful evening in Krishnakriti Festival
The three-day Krishnakriti Festival of Art and Culture was concluded recently in the city with a grand finale. As part of it, a programme titled 'Weaver of Dreams-The Passion of Muzaffar Ali of Kotwara' was organised at Qutab Shahi Tombs. The Saturday night did not deter the enthusiasts and lovers of soulful music and colourful renditions that came along with mesmerising cinematic excellence.
'Weaver of Dreams-The Passion of Muzaffar Ali of Kotwara', was a multi-media spectacle that blended textile history, film, dance and storytelling into a rare art form and kept the large audience spellbound. It was a delightful evening and the ambiance added verve to the performances.
