Birmingham Thyagaraja Festival 2018 (BTF)

Birmingham Thyagraja Festival 2018- The Annual Festival of South Indian Classical Music and Dance

The Birmingham Thyagaraja Festival is the most popular annual festival celebrated in the Midlands in honour of the great Singing saint, poet and composer Thyagaraja.

It is also celebrated annually around world at different times of the year to pay tribute to the great Singing Saint and composer, Thyagaraja, one of the trinities of South Indian Classical music (Carnatic music).

The festival, hosted by ShruthiUK commemorates the birth of Saint Thyagaraja for his immense contribution to Carnatic Music. Children, artistes and music professionals gather from all across the UK and abroad gather together to perform at this auspicious festival.

Music recitals, dance performances by children and adults, alongside professional musicians and the famous ‘Pancharathna krithis’ performed by all the artistes (also known as the five gems, composed by Thyagaraja) will be the highlight of this festival.

It is a very important festival and celebration for me in particular, to promote and sustain our rich cultural tradition through these festivals and uniting various communities through arts.
