East-West Music & Dance Festival 2024 SET FEB. 4

The fourth annual East-West Music & Dance Festival will bring eastern and western artists from the Tampa Bay community and beyond together to showcase the talents of musicians and performers, stretching hands across geographic and cultural divides in order to promote fellowship in the universal language of song and dance.

The festival will feature both small and large group performances, including African musicians, vibrant drummers, colorful Indian dancers, sensual Flamenco performers, and more. This all-day family friendly event will also feature multicultural activities, food vendors and a kid's play area.

The event is supported by a Special Events Partnership Grant from the Cultural Arts Commission, part of the Arts Council of Hillsborough County.

Tampa s Shruti Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to promoting Indian and world Culture in the Tampa Bay community.
