A circle to share poems, music and songs (Photographer: Marie Fouquet)Last Friday, there was a peaceful multicultural art sharing with Anandi at Unity Pavilion.

Nadaprem and Aurelio led a beautiful musical meditation, using a mix of soft Western-Indian harmonies. Joska took us on a trip back to medieval times, generously sharing, with his guitalele, his love of the era. Drupad joined to tell a poem through mime and poetry lovers read poetry in Tamil, Spanish, and English. We hope to see you all, as we meet again on Saturday March 1st! Read more
