Goan Carnival in India - A Musical Extravaganza

Goa Music A musical extravaganza
If music is something you live of, this carnival is the thing you look for. Music - Rock Pop, Salsa, and the Desi tunes, all make up to a big bash and if the occasion is special, its worth following the beats. The parties organized here are vivacious, bullish, and rocky and you'll automatically start dancing if you're around. What's more, you'll see only one world, and people from every nook and corner here. That world is known as the Goa Carnival. Best occasion to make friends.

Though the festival started with a deep religious root, it has become something else, something like a showcase of the local art and culture. Though most of the folk staying in Goa are Christians and Christianity plays a major role for the sake of the spirit of the festival the folk willfully don't bring religion in the ambience of the carnival. And that makes the festival enjoyable for everybody. Even the children who be there groove in to the music and make merry like a full grown freak. why? It's human nature, that creates the vibrations of music and it's the same nature that makes you dance. It does not matter whether you are into music or not, if you are having a human soul and the music is good, you will feel it in your subconscious. Goa, is just special for that, to shake your inner self with heady music and rocky stuffs around.

The festival is special for, well, everything. There are colorful dresses, freaky fashion, go wild attitudes, processions and what not? The carnival is the greatest pilgrimage for the seekers of Nirvana, especially from Music. Besides, the carnival can be a good platform too, to show your inner talents. Never thought about that? Well, go and try. There are people from many countries and that's a big way to showcase your valuable talents.

Goa Carnival The carnival is all Portuguese, even the word carnival comes from the Portuguese carnaval. It all began during the reign of king Momo, who started the festival to celebrate the lent season (a Christian season of fasting). It starts with a big bang on Sabado Gardo (Saturday) and ends up with Shrove Tuesday (fat Tuesday). The three days are the days of big rush for everybody on the beach and it is really going to be the best days of your life.

The festival usually falls in the month of February, in 2006 it's falling on 26th -28th February. And if you are there make sure, you take part in one or the other contest. Even if you don't win you will feel like a lifetime winner. And the better part is that it will stay with you for the better part of your life.
Apart from the scenic beaches, the live culture and the music to groove the Goa festival is also special for the message it conveys. That's of humanity and that too through the simple ways like music and dance. Feel it in your soul, Goa is calling you.
