Madur Mela was held at Digha on the 12-13 of Jan, 2017 and it was a one of a kind mela exclusively focusing on the Madur craft tradition of Purba Medinipur. The festival was held by the sea and there were workshops through the day to demonstrate the process of Madur weaving. The evenings were colourful with power packed performances of Baul, Raibenshe, Putul Naach and Chau. The performance by a musical team from the far off land of Kazakhstan enthralled the audience. It indeed was a celebration of the wonderful Madur craft!
