Vocalist and Two-Time Juno Winner

Kiran Ahluwalia

Juno Award-winning Indian-Canadian vocalist Kiran Ahluwalia is a unique and inspiring singer with a soaring, exquisite voice and a stage presence that expresses “a deep spirituality and tranquility that borders on the mystic” (Sing Out Magazine). Her music is centered on the haunting South Asian genre of Ghazal (the sensual and highly literary poetic songs about illicit love) and Punjabi folk song. Backed by the great jazz guitarist Rez Abbasi, plus tabla and more, Kiran transcends boundaries and creates music of timeless beauty in a modern and global context.

Her crystal clear voice arched superbly above rhythms that coursed through the audience ... an evening of fascinating, newly revealed music.

South Indian Classical Dance

Spilling Ink

Vijay Palaparty & Nalini Prakash

perform

Vishala: Expanse

Through "Vishala: Expanse," the Spilling Ink Project has created a vibrant dance repertoire that resonates with its artistic, cultural, and spiritual roots. Deeply informed by two classical South Indian dance traditions, "Vishala: Expanse" reflects the soulful verses of historic and contemporary poets.

"We dance about the goddess of abundance, Lakshmi. We dance in the dichotomous graceful beauty and consuming energy—in one form—of Ardhanareeswara. We dance about the human body as a temple. We dance as the lovelorn Radha who suffers without Krishna. We dance into the music that breathes from Krishna’s flute."
