Earlier in the day, Israeli musician and singer Tal Kravitz mesmerised the audiences by playing a variety of instruments ranging from the musical saw from Russia to the nose flute from Philippines. He also performed alongside students from IIT-B. “I consider myself really lucky to be performing alongside such a musical genius. It was an amazing experience,” said Krishna Pillutla, second year computer science student who played the guitar with Kravitz. “This is my first time in front of a young audience and was overwhelmed by the response. The students are immensely talented too,” said Kravitz.Visiting students’ groups from Poland, Spain, Turkey and Indonesia performed their respective folk dances.
“It is not every day that you get to see such groups from other countries showcase their culture. It was a unique experience,” said Vipul Shukla, 21, third year engineering student, MBM College, Jodhpur. This is the first time that the fest allowed international students to participate.
