Focusing on social change using traditional wisdom and blending it in modern lifestyle. 

Experience Culture, Experience Life

We are a platform that is set to propagate cultural experiences, understanding and learnings across a variety of formats. 

ABOUT US

Recalling Roots is a journey of multi-culture and multi-ethnic art forms coming together to bring alive a vivid sensory experience for inner transformation and  social wellbeing. We channel our ideas through planning, organization and promotion of concerts, performances, screenings, exhibitions, workshops and talks.

Conceived with the aim of bringing people closer to their roots by disseminating knowledge about indigenous and global traditions, we foster events that bring about a positive social impact and at the same time engender a sense of belonging.

CULTURE IS A TOOL FOR SOCIAL CONSTRUCTION

Learn. Create. Inspire.

Who Are We?

 

Our journey began in 2016 with a jazz tour consisting of a line up of accomplished international artists through a few cities in India. Having had a humble beginning, we grew from there to cover a gamut of activities including travel logs, events, healing through Indian classical music, an upcoming film festival and our line of merchandise. Today we are becoming a platform that is set to propagate cultural experiences across a variety of formats. 

 

Recalling Roots derives our raison d'etre (reason for existence) from the heritage that we have inherited from our ancestors. We cherish these learnings, get inspired by newer thoughts - and strike a balance between our cultural learnings and modern influences.

 

 

 

Why we are?

 

We want to enable abundance in a society that puts emphasis on the material over the spiritual. This puts the focus on abundance around  and creates positivity. While we understand the rigors of existence, we want to help soothe and help you discover existential bliss

CHAKRA HARMONIZING RAGAS

By Nimisha Shankar Feat. Silent Sage

"Chakra harmonizing ragas" is a music presentation comprising a set of 7 Indian classical rags that are said to correspond to the 7 chakras/ energy centers of our bodies. These Ragas, when performed in the right environment are known to induce a harmonizing effect on our chakras, allowing our body organs to heal and discover an optimal balance in their functionality. This project aims to explore the same.

NEW BRAZILIAN JAZZ MUSIC

 A three city tour of an energetic acoustic Guitar/Flute Duo - Music with surprising edge. 

Mark Lotz meets Daniel Marques in a combination of Brazilian music and Jazz. They will present their solo work and as a duo. Their music is at the edge of Jazz and energetic Brazilian music rooted in the tradition (chorro, Samba, Bossa - Nova and Brazilian jazz etc) but heading to new directions.
The 7 strings guitar and the family of flutes both have a huge range in octaves and sonic. Together they produce a sound that hovers between warm and woody and crispy metallic. Urban jazz life, dynamics of Rio's inner city life, vocal eruptions and jungle sounds, this duo does it all.
