The Kennedy Center is hosting a free 3-day festival to celebrate Indian music, arts and dance.

Have you always dreamed of learning to dance like a Bollywood starlet? Does a morning of meditation seem like happiness to you? “Raga on the REACH” combines all of this and more in a single event.

This 3-day extravaganza, organized by Raga district, will be a colorful riot of sights and sounds of India. Visitors can enjoy the entertainment on the main stage or browse the arts and crafts market in the square. Early morning yoga, are you tempted?
