‘Kalakaar Hai Taiyaar’ is our emotion. It is an emotion to get Friday nights back to being lively with wonderful artists out there who are waiting to perform again with an intimate and a like-minded set of audience, digging out a way to connect with every soul virtually, when its not possible substantially.
We are coming with an online gig on Friday, 18th December with a community gathering- an evening filled with interesting conversations, like-minded people, some delightful indie music by our featured artists. Immerse into a supremely mystic experience. Let the magic of Ghazal and Shayari teleport you into another world.
Get comfortable, and get set to be absorbed and to know the unknown taking back love, memories & new friends!
