Welcome to Arpan & Namasté
Arpan is a performing arts organization that is dedicated to the promotion of Folk and Classical traditions of India. This includes dance, music, folklore, traditions and values. It strives to bring together like minded artists who value the traditions passed down through the ages unadulterated by the vagaries of the modern world. We try to stay away from 'filmi' 'techno' interpretations of any art form that we perform.
Arpan in Sanskrit means to present or to offer in dedication. Our efforts are an offering (Arpan) to the entire community in Seattle, WA right from the inner depths of a diverse cultural melting pot that is India.
