About the Program:
Houston is a remarkably diverse city — and in no domain of city life is that diversity more apparent than in its faith communities. Many of the immigrant communities in the city have created a sense of home for themselves through membership in churches, mosques, temples and the like. It is not surprising, then, that most of these communities have fostered rich sacred music traditions.
For the past two years, Houston Arts Alliance’s Folklife + Traditional Arts Program has organized a Voices of the Spirit concert that presents a selection of these traditions. With the opening this year of the new Asia Society Texas Center, Voices of the Spirit will be presented in its spectacular Brown Foundation Performing Arts Theater on January 19 and 20, by HAA in partnership with Asia Society Texas Center. Both performances will feature the same program, focusing on devotional music from four of the city’s immigrant communities. Styles include Sikh Kirtans, Sufi Songs, Nigerian Praise, Vietnamese Choral Music and South Indian Carnatic Ragas.
