‘The Voice of Equality' in India to Perform at UNT in Denton

Prahlad Singh Tipanya is coming to Texas. Called one of the most compelling folk voices in India today, he'll perform at 8 p.m. April 11 in the University of North Texas Recital Hall, 415 S. Avenue C. Admission is free. From the small village of Lunyakhedi in Madhya Pradesh state, Tipanya has been honored with awards from the Indian government, which considers him a living representative of a popular poetic and religious tradition. He's also called "the voice of equality."Tipanya sings the poetry of the 15th-century mystic saint Kabir. The poet's messages are timely.UNT assistant professor Vivek Virani said: "Kabir speaks out against religious conflict, against social oppression and other real-world issues, but also explores the most profound spiritual insights. He invites us to seek an inner, universal divinity that transcends all religions."Learn more at http://music.unt.edu/calendar.Art exhibit  Continue reading...
