Nimo’s Empty Hands Pilgrimage

Love. Kindness. Faith. Gratitude. These are the collective values expressed by the music of our friend, Nimo, whose debut album, Empty Hands, is leading him on a six month pilgrimage from the Gandhi Ashram in Ahmedabad, India, across the United States and the United Kingdom.

Nimo will visit Hearthfire on Saturday, May 31st, at 7:00 PM to share the stillness, stories and songs of his journey. Please join us to experience and celebrate the special marriage of music and mission that is Nimo’s gift to the world.

In the spirit of Nimo’s humble offering, all are welcome and admission is free. Please email us to confirm the number in your party or receive detailed directions. Contributions to our community snack table are always welcome (non-alcoholic beverages, please)!


Nimesh Patel (a.k.a. Nimo) was born and brought up in Los Angeles and went on to live in Philadelphia, New York City and Pune, before settling in Ahmedabad, India. After passing through various phases in his life (academic, corporate, artistic, social, entrepreneurial, service) he has finally begun to understand what it means to align our head, hands and heart. Through his music and desire to serve the world in small ways, Nimo has embarked on an inspiring and fulfilling journey inwards.

He currently resides in the Gandhi Ashram, Ahmedabad, India, where Mahatma Gandhi spent 13 years of his life spreading the messages of truth, love and non-violence. There he works with underprivileged children using his heart and the arts, to plant seeds of love, creativity and confidence in their lives.

After almost a 7-year musical hiatus, Nimo has creatively “returned,” to share his debut solo album, called Empty Hands. He chose the title Empty Hands, because of the profound wisdom we all can gain when we understand this deeper truth:

We arrive on this planet empty handed.

We will all soon leave empty handed.

How then, and in what spirit, do we want to spend the time in between?
