Divine Kalyani (Carnatic Classical)

A composition by Saint Shyama Shastri on divine goddess Parvathi Devi, asking for protection.

The song is set in the Ragam Kalyani, Rupaka Talam. We offer this as a dedication and salutation to the great composer Shyama Shastri, one of the Trinity of Indian Carnatic music.

Creating Good Music

Learning music is never complete without performances. Our new series equips our students to create musical melodies in their own unique way.

Learning To Jam

When talented musicians jam together they create magic. Jamming together allows our students to learn from each other.

Spreading The Joy

Music is a joy best shared and the series takes the creations of academy students to the world because 'All the world's a stage'!

Jog Melange (Hindustani Classical) 

A beautiful combination of the popular Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy number 'Koi Kahe Kehata Rahe' and a Tarana in Raag Jog. Watch these two musical styles from totally different musical worlds come together. The song is expressed through Swara mapping.

Check out our students having fun jamming and interacting with each other!
