The Music and Poetics of Devotion in the Jain and Sikh Traditions

Presented by the Department of Theology and the Uberoi Foundation with support from the Sikh & Jain communities of Southern California

The devotional music of Jain stavan and Sikh kirtan will be explored in this two-day conference.  The event includes two concerts, bringing these distinctive musical styles into dialogue through direct experience. Many similarities can be found between these musico-poetic traditions including historic and geographical links to the 15th-17th c. Indian Bhakti milieu.  The conference will discuss primary compositions that serve central functions in daily practice in both traditions.
