Music and Poetry Merge in a Thrilling Evening of South Asian Performance
Join us for a stunning evening of music and poetry as legendary South Asian artists come together to celebrate and investigate the rich diversity of South Asian spiritual influences in art. Music and verse weave together seamlessly to form a tapestry that gives an exciting 21st-century update to centuries of beautiful artistic tradition. From ghazals set to music and sung throughout the Muslim world to Rabindranath Tagoreís Nobel PrizeĖwinning Gitanjali (Prayer Offering of Song), collaborations between poets and musicians have been a staple of South Asian religious life throughout history. In Mughal courts, nightly mehfils brought these performers together and elevated their collaborations to high art.
