“Music is the universal language of mankind” – Henry Longfellow
Music is one thing which transcends all limits, borders and restrictions. It touches the mind, body and soul effortlessly. And there is no music more soothing and touching than music steeped in one’s own roots.
India, a land of cultural diversities, has a very rich tradition of folk music. The music of each state identifies its distinguished culture and showcases the rich legacy of ancient history.
Recognizing the need to cultivate a love and knowledge of our cultural roots and of folk music among children, Lodha World School in Palava organized an Inter-House Folk Music Competition on the 21st of June, which also marked the celebration of Fête de la Musique or World Music Day.
