From folk music and dance to traditional fabric, handicraft and cuisine, Bihar’s rich heritage will come alive during a four-day art and cultural festival starting today where some films celebrating the legacy of the state will also be screened.

A host of art connoisseurs, filmmakers and celebrities are expected to converge here for the event that aims to foster appreciation for Bihar’s age-old culture at a time when the state is changing rapidly.

“We have invited a whole host of personalities from the field of art and cinema and eminent filmmakers,” Secretary, Grameen Sneh Foundation, Ganga Kumar said.
