Jiva Dance is a critically acclaimed dance company based in NYC. Jiva Dance, under the artistic direction of Sonali Skandan, sees the importance of preserving and promoting the traditional arts, yet also understands the need to incorporate innovative techniques to reach diverse audiences. Jiva Dance holds the belief that tradition is a continuum of evolution and hopes to invigorate classical works with a freshness and unique voice.

Music by Apoorva Mudgal - Hindustani/Indie singer and songwriter

Born and raised in North India, Apoorva Mudgal is a Hindustani/Sufi singer-songwriter whose musical expression brings the deepest mysticism of Urdu/Punjabi Sufi poetry, Ghazal and Qawwaali to the stripped down simplicity of an acoustic guitar. It is this silence that breathes meaning to melody, in her soulful voice. Her music is inspired by the works of Sufi poets like Amir Khusrow, Bulleh Shah, Sultan Bahu and the musicality of legendary singers like Farida Khanum, Abida Parveen and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. She frequently collaborates with world musicians, marrying her sound to the echoes of hand pans, world percussion and even lyrical jazz.


...and Performances by emerging students of Jiva Performing Arts
