Vipul Rikhi writes, translates, sings, plays and performs. A poet, fiction writer, translator and singer, his current work with Kabir Project includes extensive writings on and translations of a wide range of mystic poetry, as well as the creation of a vast digital archive of Bhakti, Sufi and Baul music called ‘Ajab Shahar’. In the course of these journeys he developed a deep love for singing mystic poetry in the folk music traditions. In his performances, he likes to bring equal emphasis to the poetry and its insights as to the sheer beauty of the folk tunes. He was a Fellow for Literature at the Akademie Schloss Solitude in Germany in 2010-11, and is the author of a novel, 2012 Nights, and collections of poetry and short stories.
