Diwali in Vancouver: Lots of intercultural fusion happening!

Diwali in Vancouver:  Lots of intercultural fusion happening!

Nayar is one of the key people involved in “Beats Without Borders”
which has grown into a musical cultural fusion extravaganza. 
Tarun has sent me the following information about some special events
during Diwali – “the festival of lights” which
symbolizes the victory of good over evil.  Lamps are lit as a sign of celebration and hope for mankind.

Here's Tarun's message:

is a little reminder of all the fantastic events happening over the
next few days for the Indian Festival of Lights… From Bhangra dance
classes to Indian Classical Music, the three events listed below are
just a sampler of the many workshops and events happening around town.
Check the http://www.vandiwali.ca website for more info.

Diwali Mubarak! 


Beats Without Borders Diwali Dance Party

Thursday Oct 19th, Doors 9pm
The Waldorf (1489 Hastings)
10$ advance, 15$ Door
Tix at Highlife, Zulu, Boomtown, Kamal

Without Borders is gearing up for its first big party of the winter;
and it should be spectacular. DJs Amar (SF) and Layla (OR) join us from
out of town, Andrew Kim opens the night on electric sitar and eastern
violin, and we'll have special guest dancers and live dhol and tabla.
This is a two room party: expect a high-energy masala of sound and
light to warm up the dancefloor and shake off those fall blues! Last
year, this was one of our biggest parties of the year. We've just
released another 50 tickets to Highlife Records, so if you're looking
for 10$ tickets, that's where to head :o)
