     History

 

“Music” is the universal language of mankind while “dance” is the hidden language of the soul. Carnatic music and bharatanatyam is one of the oldest and most popular forms of classical music and dance that originated in India. To recognize the importance of musicology in preserving the rich heritage of Carnatic music and bharatanatyam, our society was established in the year of 2008 to convey the tradition of music and dance.
