Male’, Maldives, 7th April 2024 – Oaga Art Resort, Maldives, is thrilled to announce the upcoming Kula Kula Festival, set to take place from April 10th to 15th, 2024. Translating to “colour” in Dhivehi, the Maldivian language, Kula Kula promises an immersive exploration into the archipelago’s rich culture, pulsating with music, dance, visual arts, and traditional traditions. Building upon the success of last year’s event, the 2024 festival aims to offer an even more enriching experience.

The festivities will commence with a joyous Eid Al-Fitr celebration on April 10th, featuring a Maldivian BBQ dinner infused with international influences. Guests can indulge in delectable Maldivian short eats at the live Hedhikaa station, followed by soul-stirring performances of local Boduberu drumming and flash dances throughout the day. The evening will be enlivened by a performance from the local band Sky Rock, ensuring a memorable experience for all attendees.

Art enthusiasts will have the opportunity to witness the talent of Maldivian artists during the festival. Highlights include the book launch of ‘Baburu Akuru’ by Rafil Mohamed, featuring contemporary Dhivehi poems with English translations, and a live wall mural creation by the artist duo Razzan & Hampu.

The festival will feature a vibrant marketplace, the Kula Kula Fair, on April 11th, showcasing local artisans, live art demonstrations, and captivating performances. Guests can participate in various games, create recycled art at the Coral Live Station, or adorn themselves with henna tattoos.

Throughout the week, guests can enjoy specially curated “Cocktail of the Day” offerings and music performances featuring local talents such as Axsam, Alikko, Dumb and Dumber, Sandpaper, Mai, Muthrib, Adlee, Muad, and DJ Afruh.

Embracing creativity, visitors can participate in the Tie-Dye experience, personalizing plain white t-shirts with the assistance of the resort’s art and vibe community.
