On the 28th of May Radha Krishna Records will present a Contemporary Krishna Culture Showcase at the Camden Centre in London – a unique experience of inspirational songs of devotion (bhakti) and dance that will transport you to another realm and time. The powerful blend of five thousand year old Sanskrit mantras and sacred poetry with modern sound, movement and visuals will convey meaning and insight of eternal truths to heart, mind and soul.
The evening will take place over two acts:
The first act ‘Inevitable Time’ is an enthralling, dynamic journey into the epic Mahabharata. The dramatic story and timeless philosophical message is brought to life through powerful songs by Ananda Monet and expressive choreography by multi-award winning Samadhi Dance Company from Amsterdam.
“The tracks we’ve heard cut straight to the soul,” states the kirtan newsletter the Bhakti Beat.
The second act ‘Like a River to the Sea’ by Jahnavi Harrison is an unforgettable experience of call and response kirtan, storytelling and sacred song. The live performance explores visuals and poetry from saints of the bhakti yoga tradition and diverse instrumentation, from the West African kora to the classical Indian cello.
Krishna Das, one of the world’s leading kirtan singers says about Jahnavi’s singing: “When she sings and plays one feels that one is eavesdropping on the music of the Gods.”
Doors open at 18:30
Show begins at 19:00
