Naad foundation – a non-profit organization initially started in 2006, is dedicated to preserving and promoting the culture, traditions and heritage of music, dance and literature. With a vision to promote and preserve the South Asian culture, Naad Foundation organizes an annual festival each year. This festival which is now in its 10th year, started off as a one day event but starting 2013, this has been converted in to a two-day event.
The educational training centre offer courses in language and literature studies (English, Punjabi, Hindi and Urdu), music (vocal, percussion instruments, wind instruments, stringed instruments, etc.) and dance (folk, modern, contemporary). These courses are taught by a faculty of trainers and teachers who are highly qualified in their respective disciplines.
