Himalaya Song

Institute History

  • 2012 Sundance Film Festival

Description

Himalaya Song is a musically infused cinematic performance that explores this majestic mountain range and its interconnecting cultures as the region undergoes major environmental and ecological change. Featuring live narration by filmmaker Mridu Chandra and musical performances by musicians Gingger Shankar (vocals/double violin) and The Shanghai Restoration Project (piano/electronics), this live multimedia presentation combines modern sounds and ancient instruments with a cinematic journey through the Himalayan past and present, exploring folktales, mythological narratives, contemporary ways of survival, and tomorrow's inevitable changes in the great melting glaciers.
