JerseyTelugu is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious, Cultural and Community Organization.
New Jersey Telugu Association was founded in 2016 in New Jersey to work as a bridge between Indians in North America and India. We have always strived to facilitate exposure of Telugu culture amongst younger generations. With the recent spectacular Ugadi and Sankrathi Sambaralu, we create a sense of togetherness for our communities abroad. Many prominent members of the Telugu community like Dil Raju, Devi Sri Prasad and Nikhil Sidhartha have made the events a grand success.
NJTA is engaged in numerous workshops for music and Poetry. We have organized many events, such as the recent Meet & greet with Lakshmi Manju, and Padmabhushan 'Maestro' Ilaiyaraaja Concert for the first time in North America, Concert with SS Thaman, Indian Idol runner up PVNS Rohit and Singer Usha's Musical Night which were huge hits amongst our Indian communities. Our Ugadi Event enthralled the audience with the coming together of many talented singers. NJTA is the melting pot of culture and all things artistic. We aspire to create positive waves of goodwill across many genres of music and generations of music lovers. We celebrate life and moments of all artists on a single canvas of time.
To bring our Indian communities abroad and in India closer. NJTA aims to educate the children both living in India and USA on culturally relevant aspects including music, dance, literature, theatre and others. We intend to celebrate the magic of Telugu people and their language. Our organized events and workshops demonstrate the strength of our Telugu communities.
