Himalaya Song
A collaboration with Gingger Shankar & Dave Liang

HIMALAYA SONG is a musically infused multimedia performance that explores this majestic mountain range and its interconnecting cultures as the region undergoes major environmental and ecological change. Featuring live storytelling (by me!) and musical performances by musicians Gingger Shankar (vocals/double violin) and Dave Liang (piano/electronics).
