This virtual global musical event is going to be over zoom and Facebook on August 29th, 2021 at 10.30 AM USA Eastern/7.30 AM PST/ 8 PM India.

Objective of doing this event is many fold, to promote our heritage, preserve our culture, popularize Geeta Govinda written by Poet Jayadeva from 12th century.

Jayadeva is widely considered as one of the earliest musicians of Odissi music from the 12th century. Every night during the Badasinghara or the last ritual of the Jagannatha temple of Puri, the Geetagovinda of Jayadeva is sung, set to traditional Odissi ragas & talas. This tradition has continued unbroken since the time of Jayadeva, who himself used to sing in the temple. After the time of the poet, the singing of the Geeta Govinda according to the authentic Odissi ragas & talas was instated as a mandatory sevā at the temple, to be performed by the Maharis or Devadasis, systematically recorded in inscriptions, the Mādalā Pānji and other official documents that describe the functioning of the temple.

Pala (ପାଲା) is Odisha's heritage and a Folk Art form. Pala has musical performances with plays based on mythological stories and humorous incidents closely related to the culture of Odisha. The topic that will be presented by a troupe of six people will be “ଜଗନ୍ନାଥ ତତ୍ତ୍ବାମୃତ” (Jaganathatatwamruta”),  a devotional depiction dedicated to Lord Jagannatha.
