Falcon Festival, the grand music festival will be held from November 15 to November 17 this year in Umrangso under Dima Hasao district. The three-day-long festival aims at creating awareness among the people about Amur Falcons, the longest traveled migratory birds.
This year the Falcon festival will also host an international fashion show with 16 supermodels from Europe and South America along with 10 mega models of North East. Celebrated singer Papon will be seen performing his numbers during the festival. Other bands and artistes likely to feature in this festival are: Motherjane (Kochi), Induscreed (Mumbai), Subasana Dutta (Assam), Spreading Roots (Assam) Catherine Khiangte (Mizoram), Family Tree (Assam), Feli Fanai (Mizoram) and other local bands.
It may be mentioned here that Amur falcons visit each year during the last week of October or the first week of November to roost in Dima Hasao. Due to a lack of awareness, these birds are killed for sport and fun.
“Since Dima Hasao is stocked with nature’s bounty and rich in flora and fauna, this festival will be an invitation for tourists, researchers and nature enthusiasts to come and explore Dima Hasao,” said a member of Falcon Festival.
