HIFF: Himalaya Song

(HawaiiNewsNow) - Himalaya Song merges film, live music, and narration in a critically-acclaimed multimedia presentation conceptualized, produced, and performed by a trio of internationally renowned artists. Gingger Shankar is an extraordinarily gifted singer, virtuoso violinist, composer, songwriter, and only woman to play the double violin-a unique instrument that covers the entire orchestra range. Mridu Chandra has produced award-winning documentaries and narrative films that have premiered at Sundance and other prestigious festivals. And, accomplished classical and jazz pianist, Dave Liang, is producer of The Shanghai Restoration Project, a group that blends Chinese instruments and culture with hip-hop and electronica.

If you love mountain culture, you'll appreciate this hauntingly beautiful tale that explores the storied mountain range, its people, and the environmental challenges they face. Today's music blends with traditional instruments on a cinematic journey through past, present, and future - myth and reality. Rolling Stone named it one of the "Top Ten Music Films" at Sundance 2012.

Himalaya Song available on itunes and Amazon.
