Saadhna - Festival of Music
The annual 'Saadhna - Festival of Music' has been a highlight since 2013. The term 'Sadhana' signifies dedication, commitment, and the pursuit of perfection in a task. A woman embodies these qualities, dedicating herself to enriching the lives of others. Just as a true musician surrenders to the vibrations of naad, women possess the innate ability to merge effortlessly for the common good.
The Iyer Foundation, a non-profit organization that has been fostering Indian classical music and dance, providing platforms for emerging talents, and offering support to senior musicians, aims to celebrate this unique dimension of women through the medium of 'Naad.'
When: October 14, 7:30 pm
Where: Veer Savarkar Auditorium, Shivaji Park, Dadar (West)
