Udavum Karangal (SFBA) presents GALAATA SpringFest 2006 on Saturday April 15th @ Smithwick Theatre [Foothill College, Los Altos Hills] from 3PM-10PM.

Galaata (adv. wild, raucous fun) evokes memories of college festivals back home by combining traditional dance and music with Kollywood-Koothu and music.

Galaata '04 was a blast! And Galaata '05 was crazy insane amounts of fun (yep - we ran out of adjectives). And if you don't believe us - come on down & check it out for yourselves in Galaata '06!

Pallavi Tamil Light Music Concert [Sponsored by Berger/Lewis Accountants]
You've either heard them or you've heard of them.

They are the  fun-est, foot-tapping-est make-you-dance-in-the-aisles Tamil band this side of the Atlantic (or Pacific depending on your point of view).

And ... here's the clincher ... this is their 10th Anniversary!!!

So come spend a memorable evening with Pallavi @ Galaata '06
