ISF’s 11th edition ends with a grand, one-night-only finale performed at the historic Orpheum Theatre, and delivered digitally to your living room. In a double bill featuring internationally recognized musicians, this is a celebration of the diverse artistic talent in our city. The evening features the world premiere of two new musical works.
The Naadaleela Ensemble creates a musical conversation between ancient cultures that span the Silk Road - from Iran to India and China - and which have been influencing each other for over 2,000 years.
Mohamed Assani and Friends present ‘Watersmeet’ – a project that imagines musical collaboration between Hindustani and Western musicians as a metaphoric meeting between rivers.

Indian Summer Festival (ISF) presents multi-arts experiences that center the exciting work of culturally diverse artists, curated through a South Asian lens. We present acclaimed and emerging international and local artists, connecting Vancouver to itself and the world. Programming across literature, music, visual arts and the performing arts, we connect rich and complex pasts with the emerging future. We strive to be loving and fierce, with an audacious curatorial punch that dismantles walls, plays with ideas and provokes necessary dialogue and debate. In doing this, we believe in the transformative power of the arts, and their ability to offer society’s most renewable resource: hope.
ISF is produced by Indian Summer Arts Society, a provincial non-profit society founded in 2011, and a federally registered charitable organization, based in Vancouver Canada.
