Music enthusiasts in Bengaluru can look forward to the Sunday event Ki Jaana Main Kaun, featuring the mystical poetry of Sufi poets Baba Bulleh Shah and Shah Hussain. Sufi singer Radhika Sood Nayak, together with her ensemble featuring Neil Mukherjee (on guitar) and Vinayak Netke (tabla), will not only render the verses but also offer introductions and translations for each piece, adding another layer of engagement for listeners unfamiliar with the Punjabi of the original pieces. “Their verses ponder the ultimate question ‘Who am I?’, beyond all identities…” states the artists’ note.
At the Shoonya Centre for Art and Somatic Practices, Lal Bagh Main Road, Bengaluru, 18 June, 6.30pm. Tickets, available on Book My Show and Insider
