Welcome to Virasat
REACH (Rural Entrepreneurship for Art and Cultural Heritage), the parent body that painstakingly puts together the event with all its myriad hues including craft, music, dance, theatre, cinema, talks, workshops, street dancing and cuisine, firmly believes in the ability of the arts to regenerate the rural economy. By presenting rural folk traditions to people who have left them behind and yet identify with them, the festival seeks to give a new lease of life to these forms of expression. Many forms of music and dance, such as the Jagar songs of the Garhwal Himalayas, have experienced a strong revival after their presentation at the Viràsat Festival. Today the festival is a coveted stage where performers from across the world converge to display their art. (Photos from Virasat 2019 Third Day)
Come the festival of lights, Dehradun, the capital city of Uttarakhand, India bestowed with the nature’s beauty also comes alive. Virasat, the folklife & heritage festival brings along with it the vibrant, ethnic kaleidoscope of India’s art and culture.
Virasat is a step towards this revitalization process: Reminscing the days the festival was first mounted, R.K. Singh, the festival’s co-founder says, “That the festival has sustained for close to twenty years is in itself a miracle. Nothing short of unbridled passion and sheer madness has kept it afloat.”
The driving force behind the event were the hundreds of young people, some fresh out of the reputed educational institutions that this valley is known for, volunteering to make the festival a success, rediscovering their own roots in the process. These young people felt agitated that folk art forms and heritage, especially among the communities of the Himalayan mountain chain where they themselves were physically located, were depleting in the absence of any patronage. They felt that the least they could do to stem the rot was to present the myriad art forms from the mountain communities, along with those of the rest of the world, in an urban setting in the small town they called home.
