The India by the Nile festival 2014 has brought yet another Indian classical dance form to Egyptian audiences who were left enraptured by the performances of the artist.

Renowned Indian Kathak dancer Marami Medhi performed on April 6 in Alexandria and on April 8 in Cairo to appreciative audiences, an Egyptian embassy statement Monday said.

The multidisciplinary festival, showcasing India's arts and culture, is being held in various Egyptian cities between April 1 and April 20.

Medhi is founder of the Sur Sangam institute of Indian classical music and dance in Guwahati.

There was also an exhibition of saris held between April 9 and 12 at the Mahmoud Mukhtar Museum's Isis Hall in Cairo.

In 2013, Egyptians got to witness performances in Odissi -- yet another form of Indian dance -- during the festival.
