Kerala is gearing up to host its largest music festival, the Kannadiga Music Festival, for the first time since it was inaugurated in 2007.
Kannada, the native language of the state, has become popular among young people in the state over the past two decades.
It is also the state’s official language and a popular medium for the transmission of culture.
The festival, which has been planned for two years, will take place in the town of Bhuvan from July 1 to July 4.
It will be attended by more than 10,000 people from across Kerala, including students from colleges and colleges, government officials, and professionals.
Kerala has over 1.1 million speakers and speakers from other languages, including Malayalam, Telugu, Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Tamil and Kannadi.
Katholiyadurai, the state governor, said the festival would provide a welcome respite for those who have been unable to attend festivals like the one held in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh.
“The Kannadan festival is a celebration of the culture and the language of Kerala.
We are confident that it will help revitalise Kerala,” he said.
Kataria said the organisers were trying to increase the number of participants and have also added the possibility of a cinema screening at the festival.
“We will try to do the best we can to make the festival as entertaining as possible.
We have been doing well for a long time, so we feel that it is only natural that we would try and get more people to attend,” he added.
