Zoe Sherinian and the Sakthi Folk Cultural Center

Zoe SherinianThe Sakthi Folk Cultural Centre uses the Tamil folk arts to develop self-esteem & economic skills in young poor Dalit women (outcastes or untouchables). The documentary film, Sakthi Vibrations, reveals how Sakthi reclaims the degraded parai frame drum & dance to re-humanize & empower these young women through the physical embodiment of confidence in performance & reclaimed cultural identity.
