Rachita Bhandari, India’s Deputy Chief of Mission, lauded ZEITO’s efforts in organising the event and specifically emphasised the northeast’s tourism potential.
John H Ruolngul, India’s Consul General in Hamburg, also expressing his optimism said “It’s a pleasure to welcome Summer Salt, a band from Shillong, Meghalaya. I thank Meghalaya’s Chief Minister, Conrad Sangma, for sending an excellent band from the northeast. Not only will the band perform at the event, but it will also perform at a special promotion event on November 11. Following that, on November 17, they will perform at Hard Rock Café in Hamburg”.
A number of satellites events related to the biennial event being held in Berlin, Hanova, and Lubek. Speaking about the event, Khafiluz Zaman Ahmed from Assam, currently based in Denmark, who is the curator of the program said “Northeast is an unexplored paradise and it is a privilege for the Northeast to be highlighted at the international event.
