A Journey that has wowed audiences around the world for over 10 years
Created by composer/educator Dr. Kanniks Kannikeswaran, and performed by a local cast of over 250, Shanti is an expansive and collaborative performance that explores the meaning of peace and interconnectedness through a music score that cuts across cultures and brings ancient chants for peace to life in a contemporary setting.
