CELEBRATING INDIAN ARTS

For the 16th year running, the best Indian artists and performers in Singapore and the

region will gather on stage to perform at the Kalaa Utsavam – Indian Festival of Arts.

Held at the Esplanade, the festival coincides with the annual Deepavali celebrations

also known as the Festival of Lights.

Despite its humble beginnings in 2002, the Kalaa Utsavam has expanded

beyond its three-day festival format and now takes place across ten days. Designed

and curated to showcase the best of Indian arts, the event presents an extensive

programme made up of classical as well as contemporary performances across

theatre, music and dance.

Scheduled to perform this year include Apsaras Arts, Sharul Channa, Raka Maitra

and Mohamed Noor from Singapore who will be joined by renowned Indian artists

such as Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, Daya Shankar, as well as new upcoming artists like

flautist B Vijayagopal and progressive rock band Agam. 17-26 November.

SPOTLIGHT

Vintage Diner

With a range of classic rides of both

the two and four-wheeled variety,

Kombi Rocks in Serangoon has been

a gathering space for motorheads

and fans of classic automobiles in

Singapore. The quirky and throwback

feel of the place is indeed charming,

which is why it’s growing as a

prominent venue for both events

as well as weddings.

The diner preserves the cuisine that

was served in the original restaurant

which occupied the premises in the

1970s. As such the menu boasts a

number of Teochew-Thai fusion dishes

alongside hearty American desserts.

Complimenting their F&B offerings

is also an extensive merchandise area

with model cars as well as an in-house

barbershop, aptly named Autocutt.

Nevertheless, it is still the cars

that are the stars here, especially the

vintage Volkswagen Kombi van, which

the outlet is named after. Popular with

the Instagram crowd, Kombi Rocks

also rents out their vintage collection

of cars and bikes for events and for

outdoor catering as well. For a true

experience, opt for the Ride n Dine,

which consists of a chauffeur-driven

joyride in 1960s Kombi and a delectable

4-course meal at the restaurant. Open

daily, 11am-12pm, 66 Yio Chu Kang Rd.,
