Lecture Series

Online

Join International House, in partnership with Kalapriya Center for Indian Performing Arts, as the Cultural Sundays series continues with multiple award-winning singer and composer, Sonam Kalra, who will recite and sing Sufi poetry and provide translations, explanations, and context for her works.

Sonam Kalra’s music emerges from a place of truth; inherent in her beautiful, powerful voice and complex compositions is an integrity that reflects her philosophy of equality, inclusion, compassion, and tolerance. She is internationally acclaimed as a versatile singer and composer - a musician with a message and also as an inspirational speaker and role model, expressing her learnings from her creative and deep spiritual journey through her music and her words. Her sustained training in both Western and Hindustani classical forms, combined with the courage of her convictions, resulted in her brainchild, Sonam Kalra & The Sufi Gospel Project which blends the many voices of faith through poetry, prayer, and music to create one universal voice. Registration is required.

This program is open to the public with a suggested donation of $15.

Presented by the International House Global Voices Program and Kalapriya Center for Indian Performing Arts.
