What Is It?

National Centre for the Performing Arts {NCPA} is hosting the seventh edition of One World Many Musics, a musical festival celebrating diversity.

The festival this year is celebrating artistic plurality with ‘Song of the Himalayas’ – a collection of songs inspired by Shantanu Moitra’s journey across the Himalayas, which was spread over a 100 days. It’s a musical performance elicited by his interaction with the great mountains all above 14,000 feet, accompanied by an audio-visual presentation. He will be accompanied by Ani Choying, a Buddhist nun and a celebrated vocalist from Nago Gompa nunnery in Nepal and Kaushiki Chakrabarty, Indian classical vocalist. Also performing are flautist and vocalist Ashwin Srinivasan, Ankur Mukherjee on guitar, ukelele and charango, and Daniel on keyboard.

Who Is it For?

For people who think music can solve anything {which it can}, this event will be music to your ears. Also, since it’s a travel-inspired musical soiree, it’ll be interesting to travel to the Himalayas through the pictures.
