Yoko Ono inspired by India

Posted on Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

Yoko Ono believes Bollywood has a lot to teach the world and says she will be looking for “inspiration” in India when she holds an exhibition here next month. It will included some films and music as well. Never heard her music? Check this one out – warning, its not easy to hear.

The avant-garde artist, musician and widow of Beatles singer John Lennon will visit New Delhi for an art show that opens on January 13.

The Japanese-born Yoko Ono, 78, told the Hindustan Times newspaper in an email interview from her New York home that she hoped to get more out of her coming trip than on a previous India visit she made with Lennon.

“The visit in the past was just to appreciate and enjoy India’s land and culture — this time I am coming for encouragement and inspiration,” she said.

All the Beatles had visited India in 1968 to attend a transcendental meditation course led by the mystic Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

“(After) the famous visit he made with his three friends, John and I later visited India just by ourselves, and loved it,” she said.

Her art exhibition, “Our Beautiful Daughters,” is being hosted by the private Vadehra Art Gallery and runs until March 10
