The Samvaad Project 2018 feat. The Natick Drum Circle.
The Samvaad Project is an attempt at an intercultural artistictic dialogue. (Samvaad means dialogue in Hindi.) Transcending cultural boundaries, this collaborative project showcases Indian folk dances set against percussion instruments from around the world.
The event will feature Kalbeliya, a folk dance from Rajasthan, and Chhau, a folk dance from Odisha, set against the rhythms of the Tongue Drum from Ukraine, the Djembe and the Dun Dun from West Africa, and the Cajon from Latin America.
The event aims to show that diverse cultures can find common ground for mutual respect and admiration through the performing arts. Bringing together cultures from far way lands on the same platform, this event corroborates that we are more alike than not, symbolizing greater unity.
