Prahlad Singh Tipanya is a folk singer from the village of Lunyakhedi, Madhya Pradesh, who is internationally celebrated for his musical renderings of the poetry of Kabir. Kabir was a poet of the fifteenth century, famous for both his profound mystical insight and sharp social commentary. His voice is often invoked as inspiring communal harmony and social equality. Among Prahlad-ji’s many honors is the prestigious Padma Shri award given by the Government of India. He has delighted audiences in the US on various visits since 2003. He is a featured figure in the book Bodies of Song: Kabir Oral Traditions and Performative Worlds in North India (Oxford University Press, 2015) by Linda Hess. Linda will be traveling with the group and offering onstage translation. This concert is supported by Nrityarpana School of Performing Arts (NSPA), a dynamic cultural arts center and a leader in multicultural education, celebration and collaboration in the Greater Cincinnati Area, and CCMpower, a group of friends and alumni working behind the scenes, setting the stage for our students to be and to create what comes next in the performing and media arts. We are grateful to the Indo-American Association of Houston, for their invaluable help and support in making this tour possible across 20 and more cities.
