A two-day music festival in New Delhi will feature folk artists from around India
A two-day folk music festival celebrating India's forests and woodlands will bring artists from all over the country to the capital New Delhi.
Britons taking out
travel insurance and flying to India this week will be able to listen to folk songs celebrating the traditions of tribal and indigenous people who live in harmony with nature.
The third edition of the annual Lok Sangeet Sammelan will be held at New Delhi's India Habitat Centre from August 6-7.
Its theme for this year is based on the UN declaration designating 2011 as the International Year of Forests.
Artists performing at the festival will come from all regions of India with large tribal communities - from the Uttarakhand hills in the north and the central plains of Bastar to the Sunderban regions of the East.
A spokesman for India Habitat Centre said: "Folklore can play a vital role in a more sensitive understanding of ecology in the form of tales, fables, songs, ballads, dances, music and poetry."
