A Musical Symphony of 1,100 Veenas

Bangalore, India, March 28, 2012

The “Sahasra Veena Jhenkara” musical event brought together 1100 veena artists on one platform for the very first time. The event, which sought to foster India’s ancient heritage of classical music, showcased the talents of young artists.

“In happy times your love for music is spontaneous. In tough times music can sooth, heal, and de-stress you. So, make music an integral part of your life.  The veena is the most ancient instrument known to mankind. Its resonance is still un-paralleled, captivating, and takes you to another dimension. Eat music, drink music, and sleep music until you can hear your soul song of eternity,” said Sri Sri.
