Bharatanatjam, the most popular dance of south India, universally known as the finest expression of Indian culture. Kathak is a classical north Indian dance, and his name comes from katha, which means “story”. In that sense, the dancer is a narator that gives us mythological sotires from India, through her dance movements.

Dr. Smeđi Šećer (Brown Sugar) in Rovinj.
Saturday, 30th of April 2016. at 10 PM
Our closing party will be traditionally held at the Mexican restaurant „La Concha“, and the night will bring you a Dr. Smeđi Šećer (Brown Sugar) and his eclectic vinyl selection. In2007. he started to heat the dance floors with funk, soul and dancefloor jazz, played from 45s, flex and other obscure vinyl species. His goal is to find apsolute pleasure by putting together sonic collages and finding the iconic groove in vinyled discographic history.
His records disburse on every party, and all the spent vinyl parts made into an analogue sound stay forewer within the sweaty dancers, which closes the energy circle opened from the time when this medium was made – diagnose: opsesive-compulsive.
In newer times, he is severely hooked up on gipsy music, which for him represents the most authentic prehistoric funk from this region, but equally engaged in garage rock and early rnb that brought a new dimension to the crunchy drum matrix which are the sound barrier of every Dr. Smeđi Šećer party.
There is no entrace and all of you hungry for fun and good music, you`re welcome to come and close the Festival with us all.
