10 day event of Shilpgram Utsav at Mewar starting from 21st December

As the countdown begins for the much-awaited Shilpgram Utsav, the air in Mewar is charged with the promise of ten days filled with the melodies of folk music and the vibrant hues of diverse cultures. Organized by the West Zone Cultural Centre, Udaipur, the festival is set to kick off on December 21st in the culturally rich enclave of Shilpgram.

Preparations for this cultural extravaganza are reaching their crescendo, with folk artists from every corner of the country converging on the venue. By Tuesday evening, a majority of the participants had arrived, eager to showcase the rich tapestry of their regional arts. The sprawling Shilpgram is transforming into a microcosm of India, with around 500 artists primed to share their unique talents during the festival.

Among the diverse array of performances, dance groups like Gotipua from Odisha, Siddhi Dhamaal and Rathwa from Gujarat, Chhau from West Bengal, and Chari from Kishangarh, Rajasthan, are engrossed in passionate rehearsals on the Muktakashi stage. The festival promises a visual and auditory feast, with cultural expressions ranging from the vibrant Garba of Gujarat to the traditional Pung Cholam dance of Manipur.

The heart of Shilpgram Utsav lies not only in its performances but also in the stalls that beckon visitors to experience the craftsmanship of artisans from across the nation. Of the nearly four hundred stalls allotted, 135 artisans had set up shop by Tuesday evening, offering a sneak peek into the treasures that await attendees. Meenakari jewellery, toys, shawls, pottery, lac bangles, terracotta, embroidery items, handloom, leather, zari, Gujarati silk sarees, Rajasthan tie-dye, marble products, and an assortment of dry fruits will be among the myriad offerings.

Kiran Soni Gupta, Director of West Zone Cultural Centre, Udaipur, expressed excitement about the impending cultural celebration. As the stage is set for Shilpgram Utsav, Mewar eagerly anticipates the convergence of creativity, tradition, and the spirit of unity that will define the essence of this ten-day extravaganza.
