Sangit Chamber Ensemble. BETWEEN THE TWO WORLDS
The ensemble made its debut in December 2008 with the first audition in Romania of Gloria in Excelsis Deo by G. Fr. Händel. The term Sangit means „music” in Sanskrit language. Albeit most of the people can’t imagine a relation between European chamber music and Indian spirituality, there is, actually, a very strong one: music is inspired by Spirit (Atma in Sanskrit), and the Spirit has a universal dimension. Sangit Chamber Ensemble is practicing the musical art not only for its aesthetic value, but, first of all, for the spiritual one. The repertoire consisted, initially, by classical and early music works, but due to the knowledge and experience that the soloists have in Indian classical music, the concerts include now also this ancient art. www.facebook.com/Sangit.Chamber.Ensemble
The ensemble is not playing music for an aesthetic purpose, but for its spiritual goal: obtaining Self Realization through Sahaja Yoga method created by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi and experimenting the vibrations of music.
