Purvarang, a pre-festival event, will be held at the Sant Eknath Rang Mandir in Osmanpura, Aurangabad, on February 12 to get ready for the main cultural celebration. The events leading up to the festival will feature live performances by well-known Marathi musicians. Renowned musicians will perform not only in Marathi but also in Hindi and Sufi.
