THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Lalithambika Sangeetha Natya Koodam, a collective comprising graduates from the Swathi Thirunal College of Music, is set to host the inaugural ‘Lalitham Ragam’ and ‘Lalitham Nadanam’ competitions, showcasing the pinnacle of classical music and dance. Registrations are open till May 5 and the event will be held in the same month.
