There is a strong traditional stream of knowledge from Bengal, that is transmitted through poems, music and dance. Merging the concepts of the ‘Akhara’, a space for Baul practitioners from the Bengali tradition, and the ‘Kalari’, the traditional Kerala theatre practice space, we invite you to a place and time of beauty, grace and healing. It is a unique opportunity to have a direct experience of Love, Compassion and Wisdom.
About Parvathy Baul www.parvathybaul.com
As the most recognized woman Baul performer in the world, Parvathy Baul is a practitioner, performer and teacher of the Baul tradition from Bengal, India. She is also an instrumentalist, storyteller and painter.
She has performed in over forty countries, including such prestigious concert halls and music festivals. Parvathy’s technical virtuosity – her mastery of vocal pitch and tone while playing multiple instruments and dancing – has been lauded by music experts. The depth of her mesmerizing performance is rooted in her deep spiritual practice, and is described by critics as “riveting” and “spellbinding.”
Parvathy’s performance work emerges from a long lineage of master Baul singers, dancers, and spiritual teachers. She studied closely with two of the most respected Baul singer-gurus of the previous generation, Sri Sanatan Das Thakur Baul and Sri Shoshanko Goshai. She was recognized by her gurus as both a musical and spiritual teacher in the Baul tradition, carrying forward their spiritual legacy. More details about her practice: www.ekatharakalari.org
