The beloved story of Mirabai, the renowned saint of Ancient India, is retold in this musical blending eastern and western influenced genres. Her childhood love for the Divine in the form of Krishna is the open door for her incredible journey. After becoming a Rajput princess, Mira received the royal suffix, â€œBaiâ€ to her name; her new status making her an unorthodox visitor amongst the lower castes and poor holy men.
Her free spirit and untamed devotion created quite a stir amongst the stringent family traditions of the time and blurred the lines of political affairs leading her face-to-face with criticism, hostility, and attempts on her life. Holding on to her Krishna, she gives her life to Love, as miracles begin to happen in this powerful story of strength, devotion, and the only indispensable, Love.
Mirabai is well known for her divinely inspirited prolific poetry and bhajans, many of which have been carried through time and are still revered today.
