In October 2015, Mosaik, a band playing traditional Polish music fused with Oriental rhythms, performed at the Delhi International Arts Festival (DIAF), one of the largest and most important interdisciplinary arts festivals in India.
The ambition of the Director of the Festival, Ms. Prathibha Prahlad, is to show the citizens of Delhi the diversity of art, especially because they usually associate the traditional dance with ritual, and the art with Bollywood-type entertainment. Delhi International Arts Festival (DIAF), named "India's Signature Festival", presents not only local artists, but also many artists from abroad. The Festival, which was held for the ninth time from 16th October to 1st November, 2015, provides the residents of New Delhi with one of the few opportunities to encounter the high-quality music, literature, visual arts and theater from around the world. The Festival events, held in several different venues across New Delhi, are a rare example of artistic intervention in the cultural landscape of the city.
