Seeking a Renaissance in San Francisco
The World Festival of Sacred Music in Los Angeles, is held every three years. It brings together sacred music and movement traditions of the world in a two week festival, with performances held at arenas ranging from theaters to temples. The 5th annual festival will be held during September/October of 2011. The 4th annual festival in 2008, featured a performance by Bharatanatyam (South Indian Classical) dancer, Mythili Prakash. She performed a duet with Dr. A. J. Racy and the Mystical Legacies Ensemble of music. The Ensemble’s works, derived from the Ottoman Sufi tradition, blended Islamic tradition with Bharatanatyam’s Hindu roots – invoking a direct experience with the divine. Look out for updates on the Fall 2011 festival in the next several months!
