The momentum it has gathered is unlike any other form that has ever been witnessed. I am truly humbled with the line-up of artists from International and Indian genres, and I am happy to welcome all of them with much delight.”

We are using the same venues; all are in Panjim, along the Mandovi river. It will be much bigger than last time. So, hopefully much better. Serendipity aims to revive and rebuild India’s diverse legacy of performing arts.”
