Rally for Rivers, the nation-wide campaign led by Sadhguru to save India’s dying rivers, is right now sweeping the country, with people from all walks of life coming out to champion the cause.
As a part of this endeavor, multiple classical dance and music events will be held across the United States as an expression of support.
Classical Dance Performances
Nadi will be presented by the internationally acclaimed Bharatanatyam artist Leela Samson, founder of the Spanda Dance Academy, along with six highly accomplished company dancers. Nadi seeks to explore the love and longing, the physical changes and the deep philosophy that the river inspired through the centuries-old voices of India’s poets. The river is a common link and Nadi seeks to instill in people the hope that elements like the river can continue to teach man the beauty of nature and our link to it.

Carnatic music, one of the oldest systems of music in the world, is a complex and intricate system of music with a tremendous range of nuances and aesthetic values built on a basic spiritual foundation. Each concert is a unique experience that can transport the listener into a meditative realm.
