Welcome to the 26th annual Lotus Blossoms, the virtual edition! We are delighted to collaborate with you to engage students and community members in multicultural music and arts experiences this spring.

Below, you will find links to our 2021 artist videos, along with study guides, to performances by Elida Almeida, Violet Duncan, Vox Sambou, and Yungchen Lhamo. These links will be live for your enjoyment through Friday, April 23.

Some of the artists have options for either a full-length performance or two shorter sets. We created these to allow you to share content with your audience, according to the time you have available. The two shorter sets contain all the material of the one long set, so this option might be perfect for some settings.

Please contact kathleen@lotusfest.org if you have questions or need help accessing materials.
