Event Details

Song of the Soul is a benefit concert, by internationally aclaimed artist Vikram Hazra, supporting Project Udaan. It is a unique and seamless blend of ancient Sanskrit chants, ethnic music, and cutting-edge sounds. An effortless balance of social, cultural and historical context makes Vikram's music come alive.

All proceeds will benefit rescuing young girls from human trafficking in Songachi, Kolkata – Asia’s largest Red Light district where live over 12,000 girls under the age of 18.

 

About Vikram Hazra:

Internationally acclaimed artist, Vikram Hazra is one of the foremost names in spiritual and world music, with 15 albums and packed concerts in 49 countries to date. He is credited as being the first to introduce the electric guitar and a jazz-rock sensibility to create ecstatic spiritual poetry of the Indian subcontinent with ancient Sanskrit chants and deep meditations. His music pierces straight through the heart, layered with riveting, beautiful compositions. He incorporates elements from Africa and South America; poetry from Kabir, Meerabai, Khusrau and Guru Nanak. He is accompanied by flautist Soumyajyoti Ghosh, one of the top recording and performing artists in India today.
