PAZ Festival of Inner Peace 2016This event is a musical journey to help busy urbanites discover inner peace through music and meditation. Audiences can expect an assortment of instruments, musical styles, and uplifting notes culminating in a meditative experience described as Self Realization.  

The idea of an immersive meditative experience had been bouncing around for a few years and finally took shape in Milan, Italy last year, as the Festival of Inner Peace. 

“You know how there are some musical pieces that can’t be boxed into a category? Meditation is like that- it’s universal and this is a synergy we need to do more with…” said Poornima Kirby, actress and Creative Director of the Festival. Expect to relax, enjoy, and be uplifted.
