The student group, Shakti, is hosting a series of pre-festival activities which extends Navaratri into nine (nava) nights of performances and events including concerts by some of India’s leading artists, a film screening, a dance workshop, a celebratory feast and an honoring of Navaratri’s religious traditions at a culminating worship service.
