The United States is composed of and built by immigrants, and it has been a beacon to those in search of a new life for hundreds of years.
Home is a collection of thirty-four poems and twelve songs inspired by a diverse group of immigrants who have made significant contributions to the United States. From Yo-Yo Ma to Audrey Hepburn, Albert Einstein to Celia Cruz, these poems symbolize the many roads that lead to America, and which we expect will continue to converge to build the highways to our future.
This unique collaboration takes the form of a keepsake book, with a CD of beautiful original music tucked inside. An audiobook edition in which Deepak Chopra reads the poems is also available, as a digital download. This hardcover book (with accompanying music CD) and digital-only audiobook will be available simultaneously.
Offering a welcoming feeling intended to inform our cultural conversation and enhance our national dialogue, HOME has twelve accompanying musical pieces that serve as personal meditations on the essence of home, in which you can reflect upon where you feel most welcome, whether a place or state of mind.
“Through poetry and music, Deepak Chopra, Kabir Sehgal and Paul Avgerinos bring a beautiful and compelling look into the extraordinary journeys immigrants endure day in and day out in the hopes of a better life for themselves and their families.”
— Representative Tim Ryan (D-OH), author of A Mindful Nation and A Real Food Revolution
“Deepak Chopra, Kabir Sehgal and Paul Avgerinos have captured in poetry and music the voices and visions of American immigrants and dreamers in this beautiful double-packed book and CD. Beauty, hopes, struggles, pride and aspirations are some of the raw emotions that jump out of the page right into your heart. Every poem and song is a unique journey that each reader will travel on to find their ‘hOMe.’”
