An unusual evening of music and devotional poetry of saints such as Kabir, Guru Nanak, Mirabai, Surdas and Tulsidas will be presented Saturday, Feb. 15, in the Hindustani classical music tradition at International House, Davis. Featured vocalist Jayanti Sahasrabuddhe will be accompanied by a narrator and four classical musicians playing harmonium, flute, tabla and manjira.
This fundraiser for International House and Sahaya International will take place at I-House, 10 College Park. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the music begins at 7 p.m. Refreshments will be served during intermission.

The suggested donation is $15 to $20 for adults and $10 for students, but any donation will be warmly accepted.
“One hundred percent of the proceeds will benefit programs at International House Davis and Sahaya International,” said Koen Von Rompay, founder of the nonprofit Sahaya, which helps women, children and AIDS orphans in India.
