On the 29th of April we celebrated Ugadi at NZ kannada koota. A busy day of culture and food that included superlative cultural performances from the little ones that sang shlokas eloquently, got us all foot tapping and cheering to the lovely retro medley. The ladies danced gracefully to all-time favorite tunes and the men performed a dance-drama combo. The near-professional orchestra from a bunch of extremely talented singers had us humming with them of and the koota queens ended it with an awesome flashmob. The evening’s drama, a political satire was funny and captivating. The heavy weight artists of Kalagangothri team and the local heroes entertained a full house thoroughly and made it an evening to remember.

The joy and candid commentary from a few members and the
artists below.
