JalaRand – The Sounds of Drizzle. Bhaskar’s Swathi Orchestra (Singapore)
Presented by Bhaskar’s Swathi Orchestra, JalaRand is a collection of light and upbeat carnatic music pieces that promises to keep your fingers snapping and feet tapping. With more than 10 years of carnatic music training each, Swathi members will drizzle you with complex yet catchy pieces!
Named after the birth star of BAA’s founder Mr KP Bhaskar, Swathi Orchestra was formed in 2015 with the intention of promoting carnatic music in Singapore. Swathi comprises vocalists, flautists, vainikas, violinists and percussionists, each with at least 10 years of carnatic music training. Following Swathi’s inaugural performance Raga Sandhya in Apr 2015, a core group of 13 emerged. The rigour of training that they subsequently underwent led to Sangeetha Sagaram, a performance that wowed the audience just last month. Swathi currently continues to train under vocalist Arasakumari Nagaradjane, and is mentored by BAA’s Music Director Ghanavenothan Retnam, as well as musicians Ampili Pillai, S Harikrishnan, TK Arun and TV Sajith.
