Soul Sangeet


Soul Sangeet is a new term and concept inspired by Indian Classical music but presented for the western world. Shivam Rath has been developing this world music genre and musical culture with a particular passion for Indian classical, for its acoustic subtleties, its deep vedic philosophy and its nearness to nature. 

Sangeet means sound or music in Sanksrit and follows a deep belief of spirit in sound; hence Soul Sangeet. Since diving into the world music sphere Shivam now blends a unique 22 string slide guitar/sitar gliding with a crystal ball. This fusion instrument symbolises a cross culture of harmony in sound and music; inspiring Shivam to create these unique events and facilitate this process on a wider scale and reach a wider audience. Each event incorporates different musicians, instruments, vocalists and international guests bridging the gap between world and local music; establishing a wider world music culture. 

Joining them is world music and mantra specialist Mico Sundari from japan, who's naturally gifted voice and deep devotion to the art of healing and transformational music has gained her recognition in various styles and fields of musical genres. Her intuitive workshops and voice seminars also have a particular impact in awakening peoples own ability to sing freely and wholeheartedly. 

Accompanying on Tabla is Massimo Bidin originally from Italy. He begun his journey with Tabla and Indian classical music studying at the Conservatorium of Vicenza. Over the years he has been traveling to India and has attended numerous workshops with various renowned tabla Maestros in India, Europe and Australia.  He has been living in Melbourne for the last decade developing as an upcoming tabla player and world music percussionists in Australia. He is competent in Indian Classical and semi classical structures, devotional bhajans, mantra music as well as modern contemporary fusions.
