»Holi« ist eines der vielen indischen Frühlingsfeste des Hinduismus, mit Abstand das populärste und farbenprächtigste indische Fest und wird auch »Fest der Farben« genannt. Holi wird von Hindus in ganz Indien gefeiert, ist in Nordindien dem Gott Krishna (“der höchste Gott”) gewidmet, in Südindien hingegen dem Liebesgott Kama. Zum Holifest sind alle Schranken durch Kasten, Geschlecht, Alter und gesellschaftlichen Status aufgehoben. Es wird ausgelassen gefeiert und man bewirft und bestreut sich gegenseitig mit gefärbtem Puder, dem »Gulal«.
Wir freuen uns euch die ersten Termine der diesjährigen Holi Open Airs bekanntgeben zu können:
