Empty Hands, Full Heart: Music for the Soul

We arrive on this planet empty handed. We all will soon leave empty handed. So then, how and in what spirit do we want to spend the time in between?

Empty Hands, Full Heart: Music for the Soul

At the pinnacle of a dizzying career, young Indian-American rapper Nimesh “Nimo” Patel was haunted by an unshakeable sense of emptiness. In his mid-twenties, he abandoned the limelight. An inner voice nudged him to radically simplify his life and find his purpose in service to others. Moving to the Gandhi Ashram in India, he dedicated himself to the children in surrounding slums. After a 7-year musical hiatus — 5 of which were spent living with and learning from slum communities — something inside nudged him to write music again. But, this time, in a different spirit. One that would reflect the heart of humanity. Over the past 9 months, Nimo has released a labor-of-love album, co-produced two music videos on kindness and gratitude, and embarked on a music pilgrimage — all in the spirit of finding, practicing, and sharing small acts with great love. { read more }
