Kishore Amati gets you involved in one of the liveliest festivals of India – The Goa Carnival
Goa Carnival, held in February, is one of the most awaited festivals in the country. This year, the Goa Carnival, will be celebrated from 18 February to 22 February. Colourful parades, lively processions, foot tapping music and exotic dance performances are some of the main elements of this carnival that draws tourist attention from all over the world. It is a wonderfully festive manifestation of the gregarious nature and spirit which characterizes the Goan community. The typical guitar music with its enticing rhythm and harmony, heard all over Goa, is part of the rich musical heritage adopted from Portugal. This is one of the busiest festival seasons in Goa; therefore advance reservation is a must.
