Deepti Navaratna from Bangalore, a trained Carnatic singer and the current Regional Director of Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts is all set to become the first female musician from India to participate at an event hosted by the Parliament of the World's Religions. She will be staging “The Dialogues with the Divine” a specially curated musical experience that combines music from various faiths on Oct. 18.

Navaratna, a trained neuroscientist, devised the notion for this concert to investigate the similarities of the cognitive influence of holy music on a diverse audience. She intends to investigate the notion of presenting foreign religious identities to an uninformed audience by focusing on shared denominators such as prayers and mindfulness.
