Songs of the Soul was started in April 2008 as a way to share Sri Chinmoy’s vast musical legacy with the public through choral, instrumental and orchestral performances in a wide variety of styles. New York played host to two very powerful and moving Songs of the Soul concerts on April 14.
The concert featured Ottawa-based group Sangit Surabhi in their first Songs of the Soul performance.
Also performing were Paree’s International Group, which have been singing Sri Chinmoy’s songs acappella for over 20 years.
The concert concluded with a powerful and soulful performance by British group Ananda, with the help of international guests including Premik Russell Tubbs on flute and Adesh Widmer on sitar.
