Chennai Sangamam next week

Chennai Sangamam, the annual week-long folk art festival, returns next week for the fifth time, with 2,000 performers and 4,000 performances, coinciding with the Tamil festival of Thai Pongal.

A significant feature of this year's festival would be performances by the underprivileged children, children from slums, the differently abled and transgenders. The children would perform folk dances, an orchestra by the visually challenged would perform the light musical and a transgender group would stage a play, The Hindu reported.
