Kalai Vizha – is a flagship cultural event of Abbas Cultural for the last 29 years. When it was started, Dr.K.J.Yesudas, who is the mentor of this Kalai Vizha, had aptly suggested to have this classical cultural event towards the conclusion of the Margazhi music season and towards the beginning of the new year.

Our 30th year Annual Art festival Kalai Vizha will be at YGP Auditorium, PSBB School, T.Nagar from 1st January to Jan 16th (continuously for 16 days). Daily 2 concerts are planned one at 4.30 p.m and another at 7.00 p.m.
