Art Langar – Two Terrific Nights of Music, Art & Food


Art Langar; what an absolutely amazing event. Held at The Rock Musicarium on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd of December 2017, the festival was a tremendous success. As partners of this one of a kind music event, we were invited to witness the the marvelous music, delicious food and the commendable art works present. Needless to say, we came back soundly impressed.

We previously wrote about why everyone should attend Art Langar. Here’s what it was all about.

As we were a bit early, we saw this when we reached the venue.

Musical Performances

Best of the best music was presented at Art Langar. From Folk to Rock, from contemporary to Rap, from Sufi to instrumentals, the music never once failed to thrill people. The fusion performances featuring a mix of two or more music genres had people standing and clapping. One after another, bands came and made people dance and the audience loved each one of them.

A bonfire was setup to counter the freezing temperatures of the nights in Islamabad. People sat in front of the fire and talked about all things music and art. They were joined by musicians and bands on and off amid great fanfare.

Art Installations & Manifestations

Art Langar featured art installations by professional artists and design departments of Pakistan’s top art schools. This was a great addition compared to usual music events as art doesn’t get the lime light it deserves. Contemporary, lively, surprising and just plain bizarre, the art was a key part of the festival. Throngs of event goers bustled about the installations.

 

Langar – the Gift of Food

With a designated Langar area, food was a cornerstone at Art Langar. A number of food vendors had their stalls present where a variety of food was served. We tried Dahi Bhallay, Chaat, Chicken Tikka and Roll parathay and everything was absolutely delicious. A langar was set up on Day 2 with the contributions collected on day 1 and luch was served among the students of Hashoo Foundation and Mashal Model School who were specially brought to the festival.

The complete proceedings of the festival were filmed professionally to be promoted on social media during and post-event; and all the Art installation works will be cataloged and archived in the form of a booklet to be used for art promotion and community empowerment.  The Art Langar festival endeavors to create a vibrant community around Art & Music based on the principles of Creativity, Self-Expression, Innovation, Active-Participation, Inclusion, Civic-Responsibility and Service-to-Humanity.

Later on, National Highway and Motorway Police joined the festival with a public awareness activity. They were also present formally at their own stall with brochures and leaflets with information on road safety.

A number of organizations worked with Art Langar to make it a success. Some of them include National College of Arts (NCA) Rawalpindi; Iqra University Islamabad; Fatima Jinnah Women University; COMSATS Islamabad; Phaser Magazine; Lok Virsa; PNCA; FM 91; FM 101; and One4All Pakistan.

Here’s what the attendees had to stay about the festival.
