Norway and India share numerous economic and bilateral connections for over 50 years which are reflected in a number of agreements in fields of economics, education, medicine, arts and aid. However contemporary cultural exchange between the two nations is mostly unconnected, unspoken and untapped. Both nations witness to emerging youth-culture, arts and electronic music. We are bridging that very gap!
