Swaradhyay organized by "Rasa Siddhi", a promotion of Indian Classical music organisation dedicated towards honouring eminent musicians late Pt. Nikhil Bannerji and late Shri Prashant Thakur. 

“Rasa Siddhi” is a collective of Sitar artists led by Shri Soumitra Thakur, which aims to reintroduce the historic culture of Baithak singing back to the larger public’s eye. With the 3rd edition of Swaradhyay scheduled on 17th January 2021, the organization is set to celebrate the musical mastery of gifted performers Shri Ujwal Nagar on the Vocals and Adnan Khan on the Sitar Recital.   

"Rasa Siddhi is a collective which aims to promote Indian Classical music and arts forms. Honouring eminent musicians Late Pandit Nikhil Banarjee and Late Prashant Thakur. Music is celebrated and revered for not only being entertaining but highly meditative and this was the sole purpose of forming Rasa Siddhi to connect people and art irrespective of societal divides and backgrounds as well as to promote young upcoming musicians" shares Soumitra Thakur, Founder Rasa Siddhi.

"I am really excited to perform at Rasa Siddhi event especially in these tough times when everybody is restricted in their homes. This is a great initiative by Rasa Siddhi where Baithak style is being promoted because this was the original style in which music was presented during old times. They are presenting this event with maintaining all the protocols of Covid safety. And I am grateful to Soumitra who himself is a brilliant artist for taking this initiative to bring us all together, to promote Indian Classical Music. On 17th I will be exploring Hindustani Classical Music in its purest form" shares artist Ujwal Nagar.

"I am very thankful to Rasa Siddhi for giving me this opportunity to perform at this beautiful Baithak where music comes together. As we all know music is therapy and during this time of Covid this is exactly what we need. On 17th I will try my best to make the audience realise the beauty of Sitar through some pure recital of Raagas" shares artist Adnan Khan.

Music is celebrated and revered for not only being entertaining but highly meditative. That art connects people irrespective of societal divides and backgrounds is a well-known fact. Swaradhyay espouses this celebration of art in a baithak presentation, where both the artist and the audiences participate in an intimate emotional exchange and interact on a common platform. Such a tradition, away from the current culture of stage performances in auditoriums, adds a personal touch to the participants’ experiences and is exactly what Swaradhyay endeavours to bring to life.
