Indian culture focus of charity gala dinner.
INDIA'S rich heritage and culture will be showcased on Friday in a charity gala dinner organised by La Bonn V.
Irresistible India is taking place at the Ritz-Carlton Bahrain, Hotel and Spa at 7.30pm under the patronage of the Indian Embassy.
The event will feature kathak performer Astha Dixit who will showcase the art form with her dance troupe and DJ Reme, who has performed for numerous celebrities such as Sir Richard Branson, Taio Cruz and Amitabh Bachchan.
"Kathak is one of the eight forms of Indian classical dance," said Mala Kumar, wife of Indian Ambassador Dr Mohan Kumar.
"Its roots can be traced from the ancient northern India, known as kathakars or storytellers.
"Through Astha's performance and the ambience we intend transporting the attendees to the Maharajah Era with a bespoke sumptuous four-course dinner to be followed by dancing to internationally renowned DJ Reme's tunes."
The event is sponsored by Lexus, Lulu, Oman Air, B4U, Al Zain Jewellery, Lavender and the GDN.
Tickets cost BD35 and a standard table is priced at BD350, which can be reserved on a first come, first served basis.
