Celebrating The Arts
The arts of India are unrivalled in their depth, diversity and mystery and showcasing it to global audiences requires a deep understanding of our culture, an acute sense of relevance in programming and an unflinching attention to detail. Above all, we at Teamwork Arts believe in love and respect for the artist.
As we adjust to the digital way of life and come to terms with our ‘new normal’, the arts continue to provide us succour and connect us to each other through the universal language of music, poetry, books and ideas, bringing hope and engendering camaraderie, vital during these times.

There is hardly a culture in the world that does not recognise the healing power of music, whether it’s patriotic anthems, devotional tunes or even the vibrations of the ‘Om’ chant; melodies and songs evoke specific feelings and moods within the body, mind and soul of the listener.

UTBT has since the lockdown begun to spread its special magic in a digital avatar wherein it continues to present curated monthly concerts that are centred on a specific theme, in a virtually-interactive format. As the internet helps us transcend physical borders and unite like never before, UTBT will aim to take its viewers on a journey to a different country with each digital concert. The baithaks will not only showcase the wealth of artistry that has shaped each region’s soundscape, but also give a glimpse of their rich traditions in a celebration of art, culture and a shared sense of being that only the arts can provide, even amidst these uncertain times.
