Sweet and sugary people of the twin cities it is the great time of the year 2017. Well it is on the ending notes of the circle 365 days yet it is an amazing end.
I am not saying it because the days and nights are chilled but because we are about to practically see a new concept of art.
To me art is just not a three alphabets composition but it holds the way of life in it.
“The music we listen, the creativity that comes out of us in any form, even the way you love is a pure form of art or to be exact the writer I am. It is the part of an artistic attribution given to me by the ALLAH Almighty.” – Fatima Hasan Zaidi
So, here on 2nd and 3rd of December 2017, you all are about to witness the great festival ART LANGAR which has been designed by Arieb Azhar. He calls himself a musician for life and not a singer, whereas I agree to it. And if dear readers you do not believe what your eyes just read, please do come join us at the Rock Musicarium near Lake View Park in Islamabad.
After the successful establishment of Music Mela since 2014, Arieb Azhar wanted to establish a more inclusive platform through the ART LANGAR to gather a vibrant community around Art & Music based on the principles of Creativity, Self-Expression, Innovation, Active Participation, Inclusion, Civic Responsibility and Service to Humanity.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS ART LANGAR?
ART LANGAR is a ground breaking initiative that connects the concept of ‘Langar’ (Communal Kitchen; Gift of Food; Ship’s Anchor) with Music and Arts, to demonstrate the practical and humanist worth of Art; as well as to emphasize that Food does not only come in material form, but can also be ‘Food-for-the-Soul’.
ART LANGAR will include three components:
- Art Installations
- Musical Performances & Collaborations
- Langar – the Gift of Food
Art Installations & Manifestations
For the first time in Pakistan, Art Installations will be promoted through the platform of an outdoor festival. Professional Artists, as well as Art and Design departments of multiple educational institutions shall engage in creating innovative and interactive works of Art.
Musical Performances & Collaborations
Performances of the best folk, rock and contemporary music from across the country will be held in the amphitheater and grounds, as well as original collaborations. An open drum circle will be organized around a bonfire as well as interactive sessions with music mentors.
Music, here is so much of it you can see who is your favorite and you want to listen to.
Well, take a little of the writer’s advice all of them are great musicians. Each has something amazing to provide to your ears. So do not skip a beat that can make you groove.
The Gift of Food – Contributions will be collected on the first day for a “Langar” or communal kitchen to be established on the second day of the festival. The food will be distributed for Sunday lunch among street children of Mashal Model School, who will be specially brought to the festival. Interactive sessions will be organized with the children in order to provide them a full day of music, art, games, food and fun.
You will be getting so much in just a little amount so get up buy the passes soon and by entertaining yourselves you will be making your contribution for the society as well. The give and take process of love, wisdom and care is the most peaceful for the soul.
See you soon and let us all grab a way to redefine ourselves too.
