7th annual Lotus Blossoms Educational Outreach

Lotus Blossoms, the seventh annual celebration of cultural arts and diversity sponsored by the Lotus Education and Arts Foundation, takes place this month in Bloomington and south-central Indiana.

Outreach programs visit more than 20 schools, but there are also events for the general public: two concerts, a lecture, and an array of free "meet the artists" Q&A sessions and demonstrations.

A "world bazaar" is open to the public on 24 March.

Featured artists are Indian singer Kiran Ahluwalia (pictured); Ecuadorean folk group Andes Manta; Rwandan singer, dancer, and drummer Jean-Paul Samputu; and storyteller-musicians Sparky and Rhonda Rucker.

The Schedule of Public Events gives the details. The first one is tomorrow (7 March) and the last one 27 March.
