Happy New Year with Anoushka Shankar

2012 was not an easy year and many are looking forward to the next year and hope that 2013 will bring a breakthrough in various fields – economically and spiritually. 2012 was also the year we lost a great figure in Indian sitar music, Ravi Shankar. Her daughter Anoushka takes over and at the same time is for many the synonym of this hope for a new world which will emphasize on true values, love and oneness.


European “Songs of the Soul” Tour performed in Zurich

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Following the successful Songs of the Soul Concerts in New York, the European students of Sri Chinmoy — under the guidance of Projjwal Pohland — had the idea to create a similar event in Europe. In November 2008 the group of several dozens of singers and musicians commemorated the musical legancy of Sri Chinmoy with a successful tour through 7 European cities: Berlin, Dresden, Prague, Munich, Milano, Zurich and Heidelberg. I was visiting the Zurich performance in the famous Bernhard Theatre, and captured a few inspiring sequences; here is a first with the two Swiss musicians Adesh (sitar) and his wife Ajita (Tabla), who learned music in Sri Lanka and are on Sri Chinmoy’s path for almost 30 years. Further videos will be available soon here on my blog, as well as on srichinmoy.tv and vimeo.
