Bengali Cultural Programs
Our cultural programs are principally designed to promote performing arts practices of Bengal. Drama, folk music, modern song, and classical music are mainly the components on which we formulate most of our cultural events for staging. While encouraging contributions from our own members, we also try to sponsor overseas artists to create a comprehensive program for the pleasure of our audience. This way we keep our cultural link from Bengal more effectively and convey that to our viewers.
