Ananda Mela is the largest festival in the Northwest showcasing the diversity of incredible India. For the year 2016, it held on July 30th and 31st.It is a FREE outdoor festival held at the Redmond City Hall campus, drawing around 20,000 attendees over a glorious summer weekend.
Many cultures. Many art forms.Many regions. Many languages. Many gods and goddesses. Many landscapes. Many colors. So diverse yet so united. So ancient yet so modern. So grand. So majestic. So mysterious. That’s incredible India.
The Ananda Mela is a practical demonstration of building community and bridges with the greater American society. We are seeing a dynamic awakening of the Indian community of Seattle replete with its many talented artists.
I Enjoyed the innovative fusion of rock guitar with rhythmic dhol at Indanation’s concert– performing for the first time in the United States!
