LIVE in concert & Interview

As one of the biggest up and coming icons in hip-hop, Raja Kumari is an artist with a truly unique musical signature that draws inspiration for her musical process from a uniquely Hindu and South Indian identity. Being born and brought up in the suburbs of Los Angeles, her musical identity focuses on a unique fusion between urban hip hop and the rhythmatic beat patterns associated with Bharatanatyam, an art form she has practiced and perfected all her life. At our convention, she will be performing live in concert and will speak about how her faith and dharma has influenced her music in an exclusive interview.

Led by Acharya Vivek, Spencer Delisle, Aparna Mulberry

For the first time in KHNA's history, the spiritual segment is moving away from just a traditional Lecture/Q&A format. Our spiritual debates and discussions seek to actively involve the youth of today in trailblazing conversations and debates. Rather than being asked to sit in a chair and listen to long lectures, we seek to implore our youth all across North America to Un-Mute and ask questions and challenge the Acharyas and spiritual gurus present, learning through objective reasoning and skepticism. From questions about the scriptures to questions about contemporary political realities, no inquiries are off-limits.
