Our country has an enduring legacy of saints and mystics who professed universal brotherhood and advocated inter-religious harmony through their devotional hymns, Be it Sant Gnyaneshwar and Sant Tukaram from Maharashtra, or Saint Purandaradasa and Saint Thyagaraja from South India, there has always been a unifying thread in all the diversity - Bhakti Sampradaya. But they all express the one and only supreme truth - Universal Love.

The one binding force that has always unified the diversity in Indians is their devotional spirit.  ‘Santvani’ aims at celebrating this binding force of spirituality through diversified aspects of India's devotional music, which will deeply connect the listener to the supreme spirit of music. The concert brings renowned artists from various regions of India on a common platform. In its true form, Santvani is a lyrical ode to the Sant Parampara or saint tradition of India. A humble attempt to enlighten the music lovers with the devotional works of Indian saints and mystics that have spanned generations and times.
