Sangeet

"Sangeet" (meaning both "music" and "coming together" in Sanskrit) was a 30-week Indian music project introducing young people to the theory and practice of classical Karnatic music. Over the course of three terms, participants learned vocal technique, percussion, and the various ragas (melodies) and talas (rhythms) that make up Karnatic music.

"Sangeet" was funded by the Youth Music open programme and run in partnership with Harrow Music Service. The project was led by renowned composer and vocalist Y Yadavan and resulted in three new works premiered in public performances in Harrow.

The project aimed to develop the music skills and potential of young people in Harrow, and improve knowledge and awareness of Karnatic music.
