Bangamela 2017 team is composed of 21 members, each with its own area of responsibility, that work synergistically to further our mission.
In 1998, a few Bengalis of the Tri-state area (Kentucky-Indiana-Ohio) proposed to organize a cultural festival in mid America region in order to further the rich cultural tradition and heritage of Bengali literature and performing arts amongst the Bengali diaspora living in North America. In the following year, at a meeting of a few enthusiastic Bengalis from the Tri-state area, a resolution was passed to form a cultural forum, MID AMERICA BENGALI ASSOCIATION (MABA). At the same meeting, Treenaneel of Kentucky proposed to host the first cultural festival, BANGAMELA 1999, in Louisville.
