Once a month we gather together with Vipul to learn a song of Kabir or another mystic poet, in the spirit of sharing, openness, and togetherness. Entry is open and free, but restricted to a limited number of participants on a first-come-first serve basis, as the learning happens better in a smaller group. No prior training or experience in singing is required. The idea is to come together in the spirit of Kabir and Bhakti, and delve deep into one song, in terms of the words, meanings and also singing it together as it is sung in the folk traditions from various parts of the country.
