Music is one thing that has the power to bring us all closer together. We all listen to music and yet music can be extremely personal, each taste different, each genre varying. If you're the kind who loves music, classical music to be precise, then this festival in Goa has your name written all over it.
Happening at Morjim in Goa, Nivaan is the biggest celebration of traditional Handpan artists and world music and there's no way you can miss it.
Nivaan- The Holy
Nivaan in its simplest explanation means that which is holy', sacred or divine. Based on the idea that there's nothing as pure and as sacred as music- the one thing that brings us all together, the festival celebrates the art and the dedication that goes in making it.
Nivaan brings to Goa a wonderful spectrum of artists- each a maestro in their respective field, to bring the culture of music and harmonising through it to the shores of Goa.
The artist lineup includes some of the most versatile and talented people out there and if you're a real fan of indie music, these people will have your heart in no time. The focus of the festival is to bring attention to alternate kinds of music, those that have found their genesis centuries ago.
The handpan is one such instrument, ethereal, divine and uplifting, the music perfect to put the soul into harmony and bring it to a calm not experienced before. Though it is not just the handpan that will be celebrated, the lineup includes flute artists, drummers, electric guitar players, tabla players and more.
If you are planning to head to Goa & have been looking for an excuse to head to the state or are already there, Nivaan is something you just cannot say no to. So book your tickets to the biggest celebration of music and coming together of artists that consider their craft something more than the ordinary, something divine.
