Nirgun naad:: Spiritual Music
‘Nirgun Bhakti’ is the devotion towards a formless, all-encompassing God. Centuries ago, some of the most powerful and ecstatic expressions of love, devotion and surrender to the ultimate were authored by the great saint poets from the Indian subcontinent. While some of these verses are direct and forthright in their simplicity, others contain complex allegory and metaphor. In her performance Vidya will sing the works of these medieval poets including lesser known names like Paltu Das.
