It all began a 100 years ago…! It is today difficult or next to impossible for most cinema enthusiasts to envisage Indian cinema without music and dance! On the occasion of World Music day, the Alliance Française de Bangalore pays homage to Indian Cinema with a screening of song and dance sequences chosen from various Indian films. 

These scenes form an integral component of Indian Cinema and are inspired quite often by Indian classical dance forms. Mr. V A K Ranga Rao, a connoisseur of film history and its documentation whose radio and television programs have underlined the importance of documenting and archiving popular performing arts, will present interesting and valuable insights during this musical evening.

Dances from various regional films will then take center stage to highlight culture and ethos of this country. The International Arts and Cultural Foundation will organize the dance performances which will feature the following dance schools: Articulate, Chithrakala School of Dance, Natyantharanga, Monisha Arts, Sanjali Centre for Odissi Dance and Vaishnavi Natyashala
