On December 11, 2021, THE KURAL was featured in the Bushwick Bookclub Seattle‘s inaugural InkAloud event at Town Hall Seattle. Three marvelous musical groups created original compositions inspired by the translation.
Here is a direct link to my introduction to this portion of the evening:
The first group was Latha Sambamurti and students from The Temple of Music, performing original compositions by Lalitha Mohan & Violin Maestro Ganesh Rajagopalan. You can watch their delightful and inspiring performances here:
The second musician was Eric Lane Barnes, who composed three interlocking songs based on three verses from THE KURAL.
Here he teaches them to the live audience:
The third group was Nottingham/Wicks, a jazz duo who shared their own beautiful take on the spirit of THE KURAL:
My deep gratitude and appreciation to everyone involved!
