Traditional Hindu group met on Waterdown's Village Theatre set

Waterdown's Village Theatre has launched a career.

The musical trio of Dhvani first met on the set of the troupe's recent production of Arabian Nights, and have since been performing Kirtan, to raise awareness and appreciation for Indian music.

Last month, they performed for about 25 local residents at the home of Flamborough yoga instructor, Lisbie Rae, who was also the director of the performance.

Kirtan is call and response chanting, to inspire the healing energy of the divine, according to group member Brian Wall. The meditative repetition and exotic rhythms promote relaxation. "It creates positivity," he said.

Although not Hindu themselves, the group members have all received formal training in Indian music. Wall has travelled to India twice to study the music, including once on a study grant from the Indo-Canadian Institute.

Dhvani will be performing throughout the area in the coming weeks. To check out a performance, see their schedule at www.dhvani.ca.
