Word from the President

Dear Friends,

We have been so busy at Kabir Centre providing you with top quality cultural events that we now have to plead guilty for not updating this column due to time constraints. We guess it is never too late to do so and we are pleased to offer you a review of the first half of 2017 and a preview of the second half.

During the months of March to June 2017, we executed our PLURICITY project, consisting of a fascinating vocal concert, a mohan veena concert, a Dhrupad concert and three shows of SAMAH, one each at Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa. In addition, we collaborated during the month of May with UQAM and Festival Accès Asie for several events such as Dhrupad workshop and a dance show at Amphithéâtre Gesù. We held five book club sessions and one poetry recital event. We applied for recognition and support to Conseil des arts de Montréal and Heritage Canada and we were duly approved. Our shows were greatly appreciated by the public for their artistic merit and our collaborators expressed great satisfaction with our collaborative efforts. All these encourage us to go further with our work and continue expanding our network. For the rest of the year, we have lined up two more dance events, two dance workshops, one Santoor concert and finally the all-important 7th edition of the South Asian Film Festival of Montreal. Our book club activities continue to function like clockwork and we intend holding one more poetry session in October 2017. You will all receive individual emails with the details of each event and I hope to see you in large numbers as usual. Have a wonderful summer, followed by a colourful autumn
