The literal translation of the title of the event is “The Circle of Rhythms”, and it has been named so because this particular performance is a melting pot of different genres.

“This musical performance is a part of the students’ curriculum and it gives them the confidence to showcase their creativity and originality in music. This sort of an event can also help our students to be noticed by potential employers like music studios etc.”, said the HoD of the Department, Dr. Mebanlamphang Lyngdoh.
