What is Sapthaswara?

 

Sapthaswara – this  Sanskrit word is coined by combining  Saptam (meaning 7 ) and Swara (Musical Notes) . This is an initiative by Ra-Ve to support and nurture our local talents from NWA, performing vocal and instrumental forms of indian music. A proud first stage for many great young talents.

 

Why Sapthaswara? 

Sapthaswara is an initiative to encourage and provide a platform to Vocal and Instrumental talents -   Performing artists, Students and Teachers in our community. This stage will also be a great place to start collaborating with other local vocalists and instrumentalists.  Any form of art is more meaningful when it is showcased. This is a great opportunity for parents to encourage their children to perform before they go national or international. We hope you will use this opportunity to showcase your talent and network with others in the field. Individuals, groups, collaborations with non-Indian styles, all are welcome. We love innovation and fresh ideas!
