October 7: Nari (2016)
Discussant: Gingger Shankar & Band

NARI is a global, multi-generational, multimedia live performance conceived by Gingger Shankar about the unsung story of the lives of Lakshmi Shankar and her daughter Viji, two extraordinary artists who helped bring Indian music to the West in the 1970s through their close collaborations with Ravi Shankar and George Harrison. In Sanskrit, “Nari” means both “woman” and “sacrifice”. As two female artists who grew up in a patriarchal society and tried to establish themselves in a male-dominated field, Lakshmi and Viji fought to overcome numerous challenges in both their artistic and personal lives as they were catapulted from conservative Indian culture into the stratosphere of American rock & roll. Conceptualized in early 2013 and followed by recordings and filming in India, UK, and US, Nari premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival and had it's U.S. Premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. Sponsor: Department of Art and Design
Co-Sponsor: The Department of Art and Design
