A FESTIVAL OF INDIAN VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS IN EGYPT
The Embassy of India in Egypt and Teamwork Arts present ‘India by the Nile’, a celebration of the essence of India through classical music, dance, theatre, visual art, film, food and sports in a medium, which perfectly amalgamates the contemporary with the classic.
Since the festival's inception in 2013, India and Egypt, natural allies with colourful cultural legacies, and with affinities towards the performing and visual arts, cuisine and objets d’art, have come together in wonderful artistic partnerships. It is culture which weaves together bilateral relationships in the real sense of the terms – no dialogue is more effective and memorable that that which is based on the matrix of a country’s heritage, an integral part of its identity. And it is dialogue which is proliferated through partnerships in art, that forms the building block for enduring future relationships.
The India by the Nile programme, over the past six years has always been rich and eclectic with a wide canvas spanning street art, photography, folk music, yoga, craft, and empowerment of women. Considered to be the largest foreign festival in Egypt, the festival has had the privilege of presenting renowned artistes such as Amitabh Bachchan, Shubha Mudgal, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, Dr L. Subramaniam, Aditi Mangaldas amongst many others.
