The Children of India's Singhania School
Once every 144 years, due to the alignment of celestial bodies and the intense spiritual practices of saints and sages, benevolent forces are perfectly polarized at the convergence of India's sacred rivers. This event is the Maha Kumbha Mela, which takes place in its traditional setting on the banks of the Ganges in Allahabad, the City of God.
A new generation of vibrant young voices brings the ancient musical traditions of India to life! The award-winning Singhania School children's chorus performed these traditional Indian chants during the Maha Kumbha Mela in January of 2001, embodying the Mela's energy of renewal. The energy of the Maha Kumbha Mela is one of ancient traditions brought to life by a new generation in order to shape a better world. It is in this spirit that the children of the Singhania School performed these chants.
