Hirawal: Poetry of Resistance
Thu Mar 23, 7:00 PM

Hirawal, a political musical group from Patna, will be singing songs of resistance.

Inspired by farmers’ movements in Bihar's villages and small towns, the music and drama troupe Hirawal was founded in 1981 by theatre artist Maheshwar. Based in Patna, the team has been singing folk songs for the last 40 years, with performances in several cities of the country and villages of Bihar. It has also organized the Patna film festival for the last 13 years. Hirawal has taught people progressive writing in Bhojpuri, Urdu, and Hindi through songs and plays. They have also composed music for literary works and performed them for the masses. The troupe is supported fully by contributions from people and has stayed away from corporate funds.
