Songs of the Soul Brazilian tour
Since 2008, the Songs of the Soul concert series has offered the music of inner peace in over 200 concerts around the world. Encouraged by Sri Chinmoy, his students have created music groups around the world to arrange and perform his music for the public, and the Songs of the Soul concerts bring together these music groups to offer Sri Chinmoy's music in a variety of different choral and instrumental styles. From 7 - 16 July, 30 visitors from 13 countries toured Brazil, playing concerts in Sao Paulo, Curitiba, Rio de Janeiro and Niteroi.
Some of the performers
In all, there were eight different performances; here are some photos and audio from four of them.
Mandu and Visuddhi
Paree's International singers
In total, 1560 people came to the concerts, and the audience enjoyed the performances very much, giving standing ovations on each of the nights. Among the nice comments we received was one from the director of the Niteroi municipal theatre, who said that in his 20 years as a director of the theater, he had never experienced something like these concerts.
Brazil, Brazil, Brazil, Brazil!
The Supreme Lord’s wonder-thrill.
The sports world’s summit-height,
Everywhere you are blossomed delight.
