Saamagaana Sangeetha Sabha was established by Vid. Lakshmi Varun & Varun Sharma in January 2015 with the sole aim of promoting Carnatic Music in Sahakaranagar, North Bangalore. The main objectives of the Sabha are
- Encourage upcoming artists in the field of Carnatic Music by providing a platform to showcase their talent
- Arrange concerts, lecture demonstrations and sadas by eminent scholars in the field of Carnatic Music for the benefit of music students and residents of North Bangalore
- Arrange workshops for the benefit of musicians
As a part of the objectives the Sabha has already organized many concerts under the “Saamagaana Sangeetha Sanje” Carnatic chamber concert series where eminent scholars from Carnatic music fraternity have performed. The events have been recorded and are available for viewing on social media websites such as Facebook and YouTube.
This concert series began as a self-funded initiative. With the availability of space, the PA system at the Sabha’s disposal, the chamber concerts are planned on first/second Saturday of the month. This concert series has seen a tremendous response in the form of qualitative and quantitative audience so far and wishes to have your support in the future too.
