Padmalaya dance Foundation and International Dance Alliance (Bangalore Chapter) present the annual theme-based dance festival: IDA 2017: BHakthi Bhava. Currently in its 14th edition, the IDA festival was brought to the Bangalore audience in the year 2004 by Padma Murali (Director- Padmalaya Dance Foundation). Through this unique theme based festival, she has presented over 500 artistes to the Bangalore audience in thematic ballets. With IDA, she encourages groups led by senior Gurus as well as those established by upcoming artistes; groups from urban as well as rural backgrounds to share stage and partake in the creative spirit of the Arts.

The theme: Bhakthi Bhava aims to bring forth the beauty and subtlety that is encased within the four tenets of Madhura, Vatsalya, Sakhya and Dasya Bhakthi. Every devotee looks upon his or her godhead in a manner that best describes their individual relationship with the deity. History tells us several tales of legendary poets, devotees, lands and rivers. Stories that make us - Tales of Bhakthi.

The Leela Sekhar Memorial Award was instituted a few years ago in memory of Leela Sekhar, Founder- Chairperson of the International Dance Alliance, India. A musician par excellence, she was instrumental in creating several avenues for artistes- musicians and dancers. She propagated a wholesome interaction and exchange between senior performers, gurus and upcoming artistes. In her memory, the award is being given this year to Venugopal Hemmige, senior Carnatic flautist and Director: Gokulam School of Music.
