Although most of the chants are done in Sanskrit, a knowledge of the language is not necessary because in all cases we are simply repeating the various names of God to bring benefit to ourselves and others. Singing is done both in unison and call-and-response. Singers of all abilities, religions, and non-religions are welcome. Bring an instrument and join in if you are inspired to do so.</p> Music at Midday Tue, 18 Sep 2012 16:13:10 MDT https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-10-17-music-at-midday https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-10-17-music-at-midday <p><em>Wednesday, October 17, 2012 12:15 PM</em></p><p>Vocal and instrumental performances by CC students.</p> Tabla Demonstration Mon, 15 Oct 2012 12:29:06 MDT https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-10-15- https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-10-15- <p><em>Wednesday, October 17, 2012 1:30 PM</em></p><p>Tabla master Nabin Shrestha will be on campus to demonstrate this standard percussion instrument, which often accompanies the sitar, but has its own realm of possibilities.
