Her works have been featured across the US, Mexico, Canada and Europe and premiered on stages at Carnegie Hall, the Blue-note and Lincoln Center.

  • 8:00 PMWhen I Am The Princess Collaborative Theater Performance
  • Thumb princesscatsquareishwebsite 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM performance details tbd but here's the call for artists that inspired this whole evening!Call for Artists! When I Am The Princess planning meetingCALL FOR ARTISTS of all kinds! When I Am The Princess A West Philly Community Arts Project PLANNING MEETINGContact: Gerald van Wilgen (vanwilgen@mac.com) Gerhardus C. Van Wilgenand Gina Renzi (gina@TheRotunda.org) Gina RenziWe are offering ALL artists the opportunity to read, sing, perform, dance, show and/or exhibit at The Rotunda, 4014 WALNUT STREET, Philadelphia, Saturday MARCH 9th at 8:00PM.This project is open to E V E R Y O N E. This will be a group-curated event. If you are interested, please make it to one of our planning meetings listed below.Meetings: Saturday January 26th, 2:00-3:30PM,or Sunday February 24th, 2:00-3:30PM. Both meetings will take place at The Rotunda. You do not have to attend both but we do ask that you let us know which you will attend. At the meetings, we can further discuss your ideas and your needs to fulfill your vision. Theme: When I Am The Princess With which princess do you identify? Growing up, many of us identify with [white? European?] princesses whether we like them or not. Nowadays, princess camp, princess parties, princess movies/games/dresses/you name it are all the rage. How does that influence your life as an adult? How does it contribute to what you expect to get out of life, and out of other people?Here are a few generic questions: to get us thinking:Do you dream of being a princess one day? What exactly is the princess archetype? How do you fight it? Who are the princesses you grew up with and can you give them a voice?Are there positive aspects to emulating princesses, especially those who represent the people, come from non-European and non-Western backgrounds, and fight for liberation? How does the princess archetype shape gender roles? Where do boys, men, and non binary people fit in?As for the presentation: We want individual artists or groups to have their own slots for performance/presentation, but we want the entire group to hear your pitches first, see how you might work together on your pieces if that makes sense, and, eventually, decide on the order of the program. In doing this, all participants will have a hand in the finished public program. Gerald and Gina will be offering guidance on set lengths, ideas, and technical assistance. The objective is to stir up the subconscious and think about how we are being programmed by concepts like The Princess, which is probably the most effective icon in manipulating people.

  • 5:00 PMKiranavali Vidyasankar - Carnatic vocal concert
  • Thumb 48392032 10156694036138400 3650306002089148416 n 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM Kiranavali Vidyasankar - Carnatic vocal concertPresented by Fire Museum in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania South Asia CenterKiranavali Vidyasankar:By age two Kiranavali Vidyasankar was hailed as a child prodigy, being able to identify over 200 ragas (melodic scales), demonstrate the 175 talas (rhythmic cycles) and answer numerous other technical questions pertaining to Carnatic music. The Indian Express (June 14, 1975) declared her to be “astounding in her precocity”, while The Hindu (June 1976) wrote, “More fantastic is the manner in which 3-year old Kiranavali is able to tell the raga even at the commencement of its outline.”Kiranavali’s father, Narasimhan, an outstanding musician and teacher, and son of the renowed Gotuvadyam Narayana Iyengar, saw Kiranavali’s potential even as a toddler and started training her in the intricacies of music. Under his watchful guidance, she grew from prodigy to musician with sure-footedness. Her early performances were in tandem with her older brother, K N Shashikiran. As a pair of bright young children, this unique brother-sister duo won much appreciation from connoisseurs, critics and the music-loving public. Both of them branched out as soloists during their teens.Kiranavali’s childhood and youth were replete with fun-filled music sessions and intensity of learning with her older brother, Chitravina Ravikiran. His positive and value-based approach to music and life have deeply influenced her.In her early teens, Kiranavali had the opportunity of closely following and learning from T Brinda, a great repository of some of the best Carnatic treasures. For nearly a decade, Kiranavali assimilated a sizeable number of compositions of unparalleled quality in Brindamma’s repertoire. She immensely values the extraordinary privilege she had in accompanying her guru in several public and private performances as well as radio and television recordings. After Brindamma’s demise in 1996, Kiranavali learnt a few pieces from her equally renowned sister, T Mukta, and accompanied her in a hugely successful performance at the Cleveland Tyagaraja Aradhana (Mar 2002).Around the age of seventeen, Kiranavali discovered her interest in and talent for Chitravina, an ancient South Indian slide instrument her family is famed for, and started pursuing it with great passion. Within a span of two years, she made rapid strides on the instrument that not only allowed her to team up with Ravikiran but also perform solo at many prestigious venues in India such as The Music Academy (Chennai), Krishna Gana Sabha (Chennai) and Sri Shanmukhananda Fine Arts (Mumbai).The rich musical environment in which she grew up, the thorough training from her illustrious gurus, the many years of hard work and good work ethics, have sharpened Kiranavali’s innate talent and keen musical acumen. She is recognized and regarded as a musician with sound scholarship and a distinct voice. Some of her notable works include Lakshmi Prabhavam, a special dance production in which she was a lead singer, and her much acclaimed concert featuring a single piece in 101 and 108 ragas respectively. These performances not only received rave reviews and special mention at sell-out shows, but also established her credentials as a worthy torchbearer of her illustrious music lineage.Kiranavali’s vocal career has taken her to many renowned centers across India, USA, Canada and Europe. They include the National Center for Performing Arts (Mumbai), India International Center (New Delhi), India Habitat Center (New Delhi), Narada Gana Sabha (Chennai), Sri Parthasarathy Swami Sabha (Chennai), Brahma Gana Sabha (Chennai), Karthik Fine Arts (Chennai), The Music Academy (Chennai), Jaya TV’s Margazhi Mahotsav, Shanmukhananda Fine Arts (Mumbai), South Indian Cultural Association (Hyderabad), Cleveland Tyagaraja Festival (Ohio), Bharati Kala Manram (Toronto), Ethnological Museum (Hamburg) and Reitberg Museum (Zurich). She has also been featured in prominent television networks such as Doordarshan, Jaya TV, Raj TV and SVBC, besides recording for various radio networks in India and the United States. Kiranavali has lent her voice for documentaries on various great masters including her guru, T Brinda and her legendary grandmother, Vina Dhanammal, and has cut her own CD albums as well.accompaniment: Swetha Narasimhan – ViolinSrihari Raman – MrdangamMallika Dinakar – Vocal supportAdmission is FREE; donations appreciated

  • 8:00 PMALASH Tuvan Throat Singers - one night only!
  • Thumb alash 2014 circle 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

    Bowerbird and The Rotunda bring ALASH back to Philly for one night only! 

    ALASH are masters of Tuvan throat singing (xöömei), a remarkable technique for singing multiple pitches at the same time. Masters of traditional Tuvan instruments as well as the art of throat singing, Alash are deeply committed to traditional Tuvan music and culture. At the same time, they are fans of western music. Believing that traditional music must constantly evolve, the musicians subtly infuse their songs with western elements, creating their own unique style that is fresh and new, yet true to their Tuvan musical heritage. 

    What does throat singing sound like? "Imagine a human bagpipe-a person who could sing a sustained low note while humming an eerie, whistle-like melody. For good measure, toss in a thrumming rhythm similar to that of a jaw harp, but produced vocally-by the same person, at the same time." -Newsweek (March 17, 2006) Where is Tuva? Tuva (sometimes spelled Tyva) sits at the southern edge of Siberia, with Mongolia to its south. Over the centuries, Tuva has been part of Chinese and Mongolian empires, and shares many cultural ties with Mongolia. In 1944 it became part of the USSR, and until the late physicist Richard Feynman drew attention to it, was largely unknown to westerners. Tuva is now a member of the Russian Federation.

    Admission is FREE
