Celebrating eight highly acclaimed seasons, Drive East, is an annual, week long Indian dance and music festival produced by Navatman Inc. We started this 7 day festival with a mission to bring the Indian Classical Arts to the new york city landscape and the global stage without compromising on quality. Today, Drive East is an expansive, multi-city movement that boasts the most diverse array of classical Indian arts outside of India, ranging from bharatanatyam to hindustani ghazals, kuchipudi to kathakali, and veena to sarod. Whether you are a seasoned patron or interested in learning more, there is an experience for everyone in this one-of-a-kind immersive experience into the world of Indian classical arts.
