New Delhi: Bhakti Sangeet, a three-day festival of devotional music, will be held here from May 9 featuring popular singers like Hans Raj Hans and Shubha Mudgal, along with other folk artistes, the event`s organisers said Tuesday.
The festival, organised by the Sahitya Kala Parishad and the department of art and culture, will take place at the Nehru Park in South Delhi`s Chanakyapuri area.
Singers from different devotional traditions will be singing paeans to man`s surrender to the almighty at this confluence of devotional music that will bring together Baul singing of Bengal, Sufiana qawwali, Vedic chantings and bhajans at a single musical soiree.
"When you use the medium of music to express your unconditional love to your creator, the result can easily stir any soul.
