In India, the jasmine flower traverses the world of man and the world of the gods. Song of the Jasmine, a new collaboration between contemporary explorers of South India’s classical Bharatanatyam dance and acclaimed jazz saxophonist Mahanthappa, moves between past and present, composition and improvisation, music and dance, to embody the spiritual and the sensual that are the lifeblood of the Indian psyche.
