This concert will showcase the many devotional genres of India, while illuminating the inter-connected nature of divinity across languages, geographies and local cultures. In this concert, Kabir’s rustic awadhi  meets Kuvempu’s sombre kannada,  verses from Ishopanishad grace a Carnatic kirthana – highlighting a certain unity in divine experiences. Each song showcases a kind of bhakti, a different dialogue with the divine – through surrender, constant remembrance, servitude or by finding divinity in human forms, symbols and relationships.
