A vachana & dasa sahitya celebration

Kannada has a long tradition of beautiful poetry and music such as vachana and dasa sahitya. Nityotsava is a musical celebration of the creative works of Akka Mahadevi, Allama Prabhu and Basavanna to Kanakadasa, Purandaradasa and others.

This is a BIC Elsewhere event.

While the majority of our events find a home at their premises in Domlur, BIC Elsewhere represents their commitment to bringing conversations, arts, and culture directly to diverse audiences. Through this initiative, they collaborate with various venues, extending the reach of our events beyond their own space. These partnerships not only breathe life into the gatherings but also play a crucial role in cultivating an environment for the flourishing of arts and culture in the city.

This is a Free event
