ABOUT THE CALENDAR
Performing Arts - Music | October 22 | 7-9 p.m. | International House, Chevron Auditorium | Note change in time
Vocalist Shubha Mudgal is celebrated widely in her native India and abroad for an aesthetic that embraces Hindustani classical music alongside popular Indian songs, modern club and film music, and South Asian folk and sacred forms. Mudgal has an uncanny ability to transform her clear, powerful voice, trained in the Hindustani classical tradition, to deliver bracing versions of contemporary radio hits right up against virtuosic songs in the classical khayal and thumari styles. Accompanied at Stanford by a trio of instrumentalists from India, Mudgal weaves the element of surprise into her concert programs, crafting novel juxtapositions from her vast and eclectic repertoire. Beyond the stage, Mudgal has composed music for film (including Mira Nairs Kama Sutra), and writes her own devotional songs and poetry based on sacred and classical texts. Her song Awakening was included on Volume 8 of the popular Buddha Bar world music/electronica compilation-CD series. She is an active proponent of contemporary Indian music as an online columnist, blogger, and labelmasterMudgal runs her own online music label, Underscore Records, to promote and distribute the work of her peers.
