A satsang series with Parvathy Baul and Shabnam Virmani

There are many ways of discovering Lord Krishna through the songs of Baul and poets, Mirabai and Kabir. We find him in longing and surrender, in torment and delight. We find him in the yogic and philosophic, and also surprisingly, in the challenging and ironic.

About the Artist

Shabnam Virmani is a filmmaker, singer and artist in residence at the Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology in Bangalore. Stung by the religious riots of Gujarat in 2002, she initiated the Kabir Project journeys in quest of the 15th century mystic Kabir, exploring how his poetry intersects with ideas of identity, religion, nationalism, impermanence and orality. Inspired by the spirit of Bhakti, Sufi and Baul oral traditions, the Kabir Project team has now been engaged for over 15 years in curating and re-expressing the power of this poetry through documentary films, music CDs, books, urban festivals, rural yatras, school workshops and a web archive called Ajab Shahar. You may find relevant documentary films being played on television channels in your rooms.
