Ektaal is the University of Virginia’s only co-ed South Asian-American A Cappella group. The group performs a variety of songs that fuse together elements of popular Hindi and South Asian music with English pop tunes. Ektaal was kind enough to join us on that evening to provide us with this performance – a mash-up cover of “Between the Raindrops” by Lifehouse and “Maula Mere”, a Hindi song. If you like this performance, please check out Ektaal’s Youtube Channel!

We also had a presentation by a member of Japan Club, and had support from a few other cultural groups at UVA. Thanks again to everyone who participated and to everyone who attended this event!
