Global Music Awards for Saraswati

Saraswathi – Goddess of knowledge, music, art, wisdom, and learning.  Saraswathi ragam is known to be very auspicious ragam. Many beautiful compositions have been conceptualized in this raga by famous musicians like Thyagaraja Swamigal, Muthuswami Dikshithar, Papanasam Sivan, Pt Ramnarayan, N.Ramani among others.

My new original composition (named as “Saraswati”) creating a cultural harmony by blending western and Carnatic styles based on the raga ‘Saraswati” for Violin and Piano. A Venture into uncharted waters of musical magic by blending home ground notes of Carnatic style with western classical music merging two different roots and progressions.

My first step to create and support projects that engage cultures for greater social and economic benefit. Humble to acknowledge that Saraswati is the first composition with this blend.

“Global Music awards” awarded Silver medal and Outstanding Achievement award for the uniqueness in nature of this composition in Aug 2019.

During most of the concerts of ManojGeorge4Strings, the live music band of Manoj George, we make sure to perform atleast one of our own compositions to audience to give them an immense pleasure and feel of the versatility of Indian Music.
