What We Do
Art Asia has a long and respected reputation for delivering South Asian Arts across the South East region.
Our work includes:
  • The annual Southampton Mela Festival
  • Classes in South Asian music and dance.
  • Music, dance and drama performances featuring the best local, national and international artists.
  • Music and dance workshops, demonstrations and performances for schools and community groups.
  • Partnerships and projects that bring South Asian Arts to the  forefront.
  • Consultation and advice – drawing on the wealth of  knowledge within the team.

Our Mission

Our mission is to communicate the rich and exciting experience of South Asian Arts to the widest possible audience.  Our work aspires to be entertaining, surprising and to celebrate our belief that the Arts of South Asia are universal in their appeal.
Throughout our history we have risen to many challenges, and as a thriving organisation we continue to learn and explore.
We wish to develop the traditional, contemporary and experimental practice of artists in the UK and abroad by commissioning and showcasing the best, the unexpected and the unknown.  We will create the spaces in which established and emerging artists may test themselves and their art and pursue new ideas and new partnerships.
We wish to create a supportive environment for participants in which transformative experiences and exciting intercultural exchanges can take place.
Through our links with arts organisations, venues and other creative professionals we will challenge assumptions, raise awareness and prepare the platform on which our artists can bring their work to diverse audiences.
The Dhol drum is synonymous with Bhangra music which is very catchy and full of energy!  The Dhol produces a loud and vibrant sound and is played with sticks called a Dugga and a Thili.  The person who plays a Dhol drum is called a Dholi. Students will learn the history of the drum, how to play Indian rhythms and explore the different sounds that can be made using the Dhol.
