The Festival of Tabla™ is today the largest gathering of Indian classical musicians on the west coast and is rapidly becoming a globally recognized landmark for percussive arts as well as all the classical traditions of India. The Festival focus is to give new generations a chance to present authentic tabla solos as well as solos in instrumental, vocal and dance in front of larger receptive audiences and be able to perform on the same stage as the maestros. The two day festival is filled with exceptional artists from around the world and the U.S. Come and experience this unique festival and learn about Indian classical music & culture. The Ravi & Shashi Bellare Arts foundation is at the forefront of preserving this great heritage and presenting it to audiences in California.
Due to the current World Pandemic
and for the safety of our artists, audience, and volunteers
we are canceling the 2020 Festival of Tabla.
We will resume our yearly Festival
again in the summer of 2021
This project has been made possible in part by a grant from the Alliance for California Traditional Arts, in partnership with the Walter & Elise Haas Fund, The William & Flora Hewlett Foundation, and the Surdna Foundation.
