To revive it and nurture the present generations with their cultural history, we are humbled to present the audience with a folk and fusion-themed concert. We are looking forward to promoting and preserving invaluable cultural treasures while also providing a platform for Kashmiri singers to showcase their artistry and entertain our audience.”
