Kalanidhi Dance, an ensemble rooted in the classical Indian style of Kuchipudi, will present their exquisite piece, Bhoomi. Connection and balance play a central role in Bhoomi, which means “earth” in Sanskrit. Framed by the portrayal of the five natural elements – space, air, fire, water, and earth – the work depicts the evolution of humanity’s connection to these fundamental aspects of the earth’s existence. It asks why and how have we gotten to this point and what might we do to slow this course we have laid for ourselves?

The work unfolds in front of projected images of paintings by award-winning artist Shanthi Chandrasekhar and lush designs from Dylan Uremovich. India-based music composer Praveen Rao provides a sweeping and innovative original score.

What’s the difference between a fiddle and a violin? In the hands of a celebrated guest soloist with over 50 Symphony Orchestras, who also shreds electric fiddle through fuzz, wah and looping effects …who is called “the future of the Celtic Fiddle” by the Washington Post, and “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin” by the New York Times …who is Bronx born, yet the 9-time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion. What’s the difference? Nothing, in the hands of Eileen Ivers. 

Eileen’s new, energetic, joyous and passionate band, Universal Roots, connect music, cultures, stories and emotions that tie us together …celebrating the fact that we are more alike than dissimilar. Music truly is the universal language.
