I Sing for Change: Mahatma Gandhi’s Spiritual Journey
May 25 @ 9:00 am
Kalapriya Center for Indian Performing Arts and Chicago Children’s Choir celebrate Mahatma Gandhi’s global influence in I Sing for Change: Mahatma Gandhi’s Spiritual Journey.
In November, Kalapriya’s collaborating artist, Dr. Gowri Ramnarayan, worked with CCC’s Voice of Chicago, Carnatic vocalists Ms. Roopa Mahadevan and Shiv Subramaniam and other accompanists to convey Gandhi’s spirituality at various stages of his life, through music. The 85-minute program features songs about resisting injustice, the importance of community and compassion and ultimately demonstrates Gandhi’s continued relevance today.
On May 25, relive the entire experience as part of Kalapriya’s “Shelter in South Asia with Media Mondays” series on their Facebook page, where a new video from a past performance is shared each week on Monday.
