DEVOTIONAL SERIES - Satsang @ Mobile Museum of Art | Mobile | Alabama | United States

Devotional Series

This summer the Mobile Museum of Art hosts a free Sunday afternoon series of presentations that focus on the theme of Devotional Music, inspired by Janet Cardiff’s sound sculpture Forty-Part Motet, featuring the music of Thomas Tallis. Traditionally devotional music has been a part of Christian, Hindu, Sufi, Buddhist, Islamic and Jewish music. You are invited to come experience the artistry of area musicians in our Larkins Auditorium, showcasing the unique cultures and traditions along the Gulf Coast.

Following each presentation, feel free to explore the similarities and differences while enjoying the sound installation on the second floor for a $5 entry fee.

Sunday, August 21

From public gatherings to religious discussions, this Southeast Asian devotional tradition creates a community of spirituality. Satsang is where friends, family and seekers get together and sing praises for the Divine using Southeast Asian musical styles and instruments. Part meditation, part dialogue, and part performance, Satsang offers a unique spiritual experience. The verses, called Bhajan, are written in Sanskrit.  Jigar Patel, Chirayu Patel, and Makta Ranjan will join us to sing and play small cymbals and guitar.
