The closing ceremony of two-day 7th Manipuri Folk Dance festival organised by TG-Foundation for Arts and Culture (TG-FOAC) under the sponsorship of the Ministry of Culture was held at Pukhao Laipham community hall, Imphal East on Monday.

During the occasion, state co-coordinator, Arts and Culture Sh Nabachandra Sharma said the infrastructure of MDU hall and Rup Mahal theatre hall needs to be improved to promote the art and culture of Manipur.

He said Manipur has been known for its rich arts and culture across the world. But it has been degrading as the infrastructure of some of the theatre halls and others related with the arts and culture has not been renovated. Necessary steps will be taken to promote the arts and culture of Manipur, Nabachandra said.

AIR approved artiste Okram Baruni and assistant professor department of Dance and Music, Manipur University L Subhadra Devi also attended the function as president and guest of honour respectively.

As a part of the programme, Manipur cultural dance and songs including ‘maibi jagoi’, ‘thougal jagoi’, ‘dhol cholom’, ‘kabui jagoi’ were demonstrated.
