ICMA Foundation, in collaboration with Stanford University, brings you a unique cross-platform, cultural experience! Accomplished North Indian classical vocalist Mahesh Kale teams up with Professor Anna Schultz (Department of Music, Stanford University) to explore a powerful devotional song and storytelling tradition of western India - the Kirtan. Originating from the region of Maharashtra, with deep roots in devotion and the communitarian experience, the Kirtan has withstood the test of time, emerging as a powerful simultaneous medium for art, expression, spirituality and identity.

In this audio-visual presentation, you will witness videos clips by eminent personalities in the field, experience dazzling renditions of Kirtan and Abhang performed by Mahesh Kale and group, with accompanying artists - Suryaksha Deshpande (Tabla) and Anand Karve (Harmonium)  - while Prof. Anna Schultz will walk you through the historical landscape of this ancient art form.
