Hindu communities in the province of Malaga will come together to enjoy the Festival de la India, which will be held in Churriana on Saturday 1 September.

This vibrant and colourful festival offers an afternoon of oriental culture, complete with Bollywood music and folk dancing. Visitors will enjoy demonstrations of the classical Bharatanatyam dance performed by dancers dressed in traditional costume and accompanied by spiritual music. This classical temple dance is an art that consecrates the body of the dancer, who dissolves her identity in the rhythm of the music.

The festival will offer yoga, meditation and henna workshops, and there will also be an Indian street market selling saris, sherwani coats, bangles, beads, cashmere scarves, books, aromatic teas, spices and herbs.

Lovers of Indian food will be spoilt for choice, because they will have the opportunity to sample some of the country's most traditional gastronomy, which will include spicy curries, different varieties of chapati and an array of vegetarian dishes.

The festival, which is free, will be held in the Hare Krishna Cultural Centre in Churriana and will start at 6pm and continue until midnight.
