Bengaluru's famed music fests at Sri Ramanavmi time cancelled

All the scheduled music concerts for the Sri Ramanavami festival season in Bengaluru stand postponed or cancelled. This is because of the corona virus pandemic in the country.

The big organiser in the city at Chamarajpet, Sree Ramaseva Mandali waited till the late March hoping there would be a glimmer of hope that normalcy would return. This after the foundation for the tent was laid in the Old Fort School ground.

Others like the mandali in Seshadripuram held back circulating the concerts schedule the day things looked grey and called it off the day it became clear a lockdown was imminent.

Also, many artistes expressed reservations and did not commit themselves.
