SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, August 25, 2001: The Sydney Opera House is reverberating with the sounds of tablas, sarods, guqins, cymbals and other Asian musical instruments as the Asian Music and Arts Festival opened in this Australian city on Friday. A number of artistes are set to enthral the audience with their performances in Indian classical dance and music in the three-day festival that entered its sixth year. Leading the charge will be the Sydney-based Lingalayam Dance Company led by Annadavalli, one of the leading Indian classical dance artistes in Australia. Lingalayam will showcase their latest production, "Kuruntokai -- The Interior Landscape," based on an anthology of 400 Tamil love poems that date back to the fourth century ce. The opening day also held a free late night for followers of Eastern music as the music group Songket played Indian fusion sounds.
