The Gift of Wisdom as part of Locating the Sacred Festival
Saturday, September 15, 2012 from 2:00 PM to 4:30 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
In the village setting of an autumnal garden, Master Artists from the NYFA Folk Artist Development Program present the sacred traditions that have been passed on to them through lineage and legacy. Imbued with reverence for the artists' teachers, performances will include a devotional Odissi dance (classical dance form of India) by Mala Desai, a Hindustani classical composition on sitar by Ikhlaq Hussain, powerful songs of praise for elders on the kora (African harp-lute) by Alhaji Papa Susso, and a seasonal improvisation on the kayagum (Korean zither) by Yoon Soon Park. These artists, all masters of their own tradition, have collaborated and rehearsed together for the past few months, learning about each other's traditions, and...having lots of fun in the process! Experience and participate in this spirit of sharing at the enchanting Queens Botanical Garden. All are welcome, including families.
General Admission to the Queens Botanical Garden: $4 adults; $3 Seniors; $2 Students with ID and children over 3 years of age. The event itself is free. For more information go to: locatingthesacred.org/the-gift-of-wisdom/
This event is part of the Asian American Arts Alliance's Locating the Sacred Festival, and is presented by Queens Botanical Garden in association with the New York Foundation for the Arts.
