This series of work was commissioned for Himalaya Song, as part of New Frontiers in the Sundance Film Festival 2012. Each painting responds to the themes addressed in the live performance.

Himalaya Song is a musically infused cinematic performance that explores this majestic mountain range and its interconnecting cultures as the region undergoes major environmental and ecological change. Featuring live narration by filmmaker Mridu Chandra, artwork by Kamaljeet Ahluwalia and musical performances by musicians Gingger Shankar (vocals/double violin) and Dave Liang (piano/electronics), this live multimedia presentation combines modern sounds and ancient instruments with a cinematic journey through the Himalayan past and present, exploring folktales, mythological narratives, contemporary ways of survival, and tomorrow’s inevitable changes in the great melting glaciers.

Himalaya Song will be touring around the USA throughout 2012.
