Aditya Ravidas is our #SapaStar this July! Aged 12, Aditya has been learning Carnatic Violin at SaPa for the past 3 years. Born in a musical family, singing was a very natural phenomenon for Aditya. He had the ability to pick up songs with ease and could sing Ganesha Pancharatnam and Hanuman Chalisa at the age of 3. Aditya is also learning Carnatic Vocal from a renowned guru. He has won several prizes in music competitions at the school and regional levels and is a semifinalist for Sangeet Samrat Carnatic music premier league under the melodic instrumental category. Aditya is also part of the school hockey team and is a voracious reader. He has participated in 'spelling bee' at international level and has been a rank holder in Maths Olympiad.

At SaPa, we enjoy doing workshops and believe it's a great way to exchange ideas and meet new talent! SaPa recently conducted a five-day music workshop in the U.S., in association with ArtNBeat, a performing arts organisation based in New Jersey.

The workshop was conducted by Dr. L. Subramaniam and Smt. Kavita Krishnamurti Subramaniam and focused on technique, vocal/tone production and musicianship. We have to say it was such fun interacting with music students and musicians spanning an age group of 10 to 50 years! The icing on the cake: the workshop recital was covered by TV Asia! :) A couple of pictures from the workshop for you!
