A Meeting of Two Seas: Migration Stories

Sunday, April 28, 2019 at 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free & Open to the Public

Following the groundbreaking performances of South Asian music, dance, and poetry offered these past two years at Rockefeller Chapel by a coalition of Hindu and Muslim students working to create a “meeting of two seas,” this year’s concert takes a new direction: celebrating the performance traditions that emerged from the movement and migration of diverse spiritual communities across South Asia, the Middle East, and Andalusia.

Join us for performances of Indian Jewish music alongside Hindu abhangs, compositions of Iranian Baha’i refugees, music of Jewish and Muslim composers from Andalusia, and more! Some of these pieces will be performed in the United States for the very first time.

Refreshments will be provided afterward. Free admission, open to all.

With Rasa Mahmoudian, violin, and Tom Clowes, cello
Presented by University of Chicago Spiritual Life, with the Hindu Student Sangam and Muslim Students Association.
