Wild Women


The Indian Music Experience invites you to a dynamic creative dialogue between poet Arundhathi Subramaniam and musician Chitra Srikrishna, accompanied by Deepika Srinivasan on Mridangam. Based on a new Penguin anthology of Indian sacred poetry by women, edited by Arundhathi Subramaniam, Wild Women, this jugalbandi introduces audiences to some unforgettable women mystics of this subcontinent – celebrated and unsung.

About Wild Women: Seekers, Protagonists and Goddesses in Sacred Indian Poetry – in this anthology of sacred poetry, Arundhathi Subramaniam weaves together haunting voices of, by, and for women across the Indian subcontinent. Here is a lineage of audacious woman-centered spirituality that traverses the poetry of ancient Buddhist nuns, Bhakti and Sufi mystics, and more. There are women here, and men singing as women, and both raising their voices in praise of the sacred feminine. Brought to us through translation, these poems surprise us with how intimately familiar their ravenous yearnings and ecstatic freedoms are. Wild Women invites us to reclaim an explosive inheritance of female power, rapture, and wisdom.
