Carnatic music is a powerful universal musical medium that unites, enlightens and transforms. For us at the Solihull Carnatic Music Circle, the innate power of Carnatic music sparked a spiritual awakening that has influenced our lives more deeply than we could have ever imagined. We have since devoted our efforts and talent to providing spiritual enlightenment as a service to the community through traditional renderings of South Indian Classical (Carnatic) music.
Music is not “just music” to us. It is a path to spiritual enlightenment. That is why, we practice music of various forms in order to enhance our ability to connect music to spirituality in unique ways that can help put listeners on the path to their own spiritual awakening. This transformative process, in the end, is the path to achieving your highest potential, reaching a higher plane of knowledge and awareness, and living in peace and contentment.
For those who desire to nurture and develop their own Indian classical Carnatic musical talents or Percussions in Tabla, we provide flexible, personally-tailored training/Lessons through the week.
The teaching is based on the age old tradition of learning the Swaravalis and gradually build up to Alankarams, Gitam & Varnams. We also provide a rare opportunity to indulge in Devotional Choral Singing in a very Traditional Pracheena Sampradaya Bhajanai style. During this weekly event, with great festive fervor, we sing/practice songs composed by great composers like Thyagaraja, Purandara Dasa, Annamacharya to name a few. In the UK (and Europe), a devotional musical choir that meets weekly is indeed very unique. Join us to learn this art!
