Shanti: A Journey of Peace is an expansive and collaborative performance that explores the meanings and message of peace, joy, and the interconnectedness of us all through dance, music, and images of India. Representing the ultimate meeting of Western and Eastern cultures, this acclaimed multi-media performance –- which premiered to a capacity audience on May 1, 2004 at the University of Cincinnati’s Great Hall and launched the Indo-American choral movement in the US –- will be recreated in the bay area with a 150-member combined choir.

Shanti is created by Kanniks Kanniksewaran, an internationally-known, award-winning, and visionary local composer, music educator, and scholar whose work has been performed in and has had an impact in several parts of the world.
