Food for Thought: “Japanese Taiko Drum & Dance”

Big drums, powerful rhythms, and electrifying, room-thumping energy. Taikoza is described as a powerful celebration of Asian culture that will leave a lasting memory. From Japan’s rich tradition of music and performance, Taikoza has created a new sound using a variety of traditional and new instruments, which combined with an energetic dance performance, makes it a must-see event.
Global Film: BARFI!
6:00 – 8:30 p.m., Lecture Hall – SC132
His parents named him Murphy, but everyone calls him Barfi! Always ready with a prank up his sleeve, he's quite the charmer, especially with the ladies! In Darjeeling, Barfi (Ranbir Kapoor) is the talk of the town. Even though he can neither speak nor listen! His bitter-sweet relationship with two beautiful young ladies, Shruti (Ileana D'cruz) and Jhilmil (Priyanka Chopra) sets in motion a chain of events that will turn his life upside down! A heart-warming tale of selfless love and about finding happiness in the smallest things in life; that tells you no matter how tough your life may be, "Don't Worry. Be Barfi!"
