SAMMAAN 2020 – A new way of enriching Performing Arts! Don’t miss the opportunity.
India is a country with a rich cultural heritage. A large part of our culture is attributed to the varied forms of performing arts like music and dance. In music, Hindustani Classical and Carnatic Classical music are forms that have been perfected over centuries and have been evolving for the many long years until today. Same applies to traditional dance forms like Kathak, Bharatnatyam, Odissi and others.
In a time when the Guru-shishya parampara was only the mode of learning, these arts were taken forward by immediate blood relations or closely knit disciples. This too has seen a change. Other, other interested participants could access this art through music and dance schools or travel to the Guru’s residence. While this form of learning still continues, in these tiring times of pursuing lessons in these arts has relatively come to a stand-still.
The Rithwik Foundation for Performing Arts (“RFPA”) is zealous to reach out to the many aspiring students to help them get an uninterrupted access to stalwarts in the field of these arts through the global talent hunt platform, ‘SAMMAAN’.
SAMMAAN connotes honour and a reward for your achievement. It is an expression and a way to congratulate you for your commendable efforts that led to a successful completion. It is a mark of crossing one milestone and a motivation to go further.
Through SAMMAAN 2020, any aspiring singer, instrumentalist or as dancer from around the world can present his/ her art to the stalwarts in the field of music and dance. The Contest is open to all age groups. Aspirants between the age of 6 and 14 can participate in the Children category while those above 14 can participate in the Adults category. The winner of the contest gets the opportunity get valuable insights, feedback and master classes to nurture his/ her talent going forward and will also receive a scholarship from RFPA to pursue a higher study in their field of art.
So, if you have the talent in any of these art forms, take the leap and get yourself a chance to win the opportunity to groom yourself to be the artiste of the future!
