Soul Fest was held at the picturesque British High Commissioner’s residence lawns at 2 Rajaji Marg, New Delhi on December 1st, 2018. Sir Dominic and Lady Asquith started the inaugural event with the auspicious gesture of lighting the lamp followed by a stunning performance by India’s first Symphony Orchestra ‘AIMR’. The harmony between their woodwind and brass instruments enraptured the audience and the band received a thunderous applause after their performance.
The event had four zones - Soul Food had different mouth-watering cuisines and dishes from famous gourmet chefs while Soul Therapy encompassed aura readers, tarot card readers, Reiki healers, etc. Similarly, Soul Style involved sale of trendy apparels and accessories while Soul Craft exhibited artistic expression by different handicraft and visual arts professionals. There was an ‘Ask the Expert’ stall as well where oncologists offered their assistance and guided the visitors on different aspects of cancer.
Moreover, the ‘Clownselors’ left no stone unturned in their quest to spread happiness through fun activities and mimicry acts. The event was a hit among the young ones indeed as they seemed to be having a time of their lives at the bouncy and mini golf area in the kids section. Soul Fest was finally concluded by Djembe Drummers' magical performance and everyone swayed and immersed themselves in the beauty of their spellbinding music.
