Dumelang!!! (Hellos!!!)
It’s the time to talk about my favourite topic. Art, culture, music, dance, drama, talent show, sports etccc…

RAMZAT KALAMANDIR, INDIA.

Being an Indian registered artist from past 18 years, and die-hard fan of traditional folk culture, my heart can skip the life beat but can not skip the music beat anywhere in the world wherever I go..

     

VIBRANT INDIAN CULTURAL CLUB, UK.

With support from all friends in UK, we managed to start a group to promote awareness of Indian culture in children.
Last year, children loved participating in the drama created by us- Modern Musical Ramayana…

   

BLACK CHILD THEATER PRODUCTION, SOUTH AFRICA.


The artists from black child theatre learning an Indian dance. I must say they are super multitalented stars, can dance, act and sing.
I am also working with the group director to produce a drama script which can deliever the health messages in the community as these guys can make any people cry, laugh, listen, understand and enjoy in every situations.

    

  

     

  
 

MUNSIEVILLE GOT TALENT, SOUTH AFRICA.


It has been a great pleasure to be part of management and jury panel for Munsieville Got Talent, organised by Project Hope, UK. They are really energetic performers, just look at this 7 yr old kid leading the team from the front. Awesome!!!!        

   

   

SOUTH AFRICA HERITAGE DAY.


SA celebrated Heritage day last week. I am very grateful to Ridaira HIV/AIDS counselling group to invite me as a guest and given me a chance to present about health center I am currently working on. 
Colourful traditional costumes, singing and dancing acts were just mind blowing…I loved every bit of music beats…   

    
    

 

   
   

Game of Carrom at Munsieville old age care home

It was a great chance to meet the volunteers and old age people at their work place. Tried local version of Carrom game which is very different from Carrom; also taught them original game of Carrom. Loved the time though I lost both the games I played:-)

  
    

INTRODUCTION OF CRICKET IN COMMUNITY SCHOOL

As part of working with community to develop children holistically, We have introduced Cricket in the Mayebuye school near informal settlement. First day was packed with high energy and kids from age 7-11 enjoyed the learning of gentlemen’s game. Highly talented kids, no language barrier between me and them.

  
    
    

  
I strongly believe, ‘An artist can never live without an art irrespective of wherever in the world he/she lives in…’ 

Long live Pulse!!!
