This year, Diwali at the MFA is going virtual! Join us online to celebrate the ancient festival of lights observed around the world by many cultures and religions. On Diwali, Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, and Jains light a diya (oil lamp) with family and friends, celebrating the triumph of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, and good over evil.
The free event, hosted in partnership with SubDrift Boston and streamed here and on Facebook and YouTube, features:
- Music by guitarist and vocalist Agney Mulay
- Highlights from Diwali 2019
- A prose reading from Hafsa Arain
- Music by vocalist Sujatha Kumar
