Kaif means intoxicated. In this performance, the group will sing songs and tell stories of legends from India who were infamous for being intoxicated in love or music, or both.
Shiv Ki Baraat / UP folk song
Shiv ji comes with a procession of ghosts, sitting on the Nandi bull with snakes hanging from his neck to receive Parvati, his bride.
The song talks about Parvati’s family’s reaction to this eccentric bridegroom.
Sohni / Punjabi folk song
Sohni crosses the dangerous Chenaab river every night with the help of an earthern pot to unite with her lover, Mahiwal.
The song talks about a stormy night when Sohni finds a turbulent river and an unbaked pot, both trying to convince her not to cross today. However, Sohni’s resolve is unshaken and so is her love.
Meera / Rajasthani folk song
This song talks about Meerabai, the celebrated female poet-saint of India. Originally born as a princess and married into the kingdom of Chittor, the song talks about Meera’s love and devotion towards the divine and her resolve to break free from the material wealth of the kingdom and join her true love, the divine Lord Krishna.
