Thiagaraja Aaradhana Day in Bay Area

South India Fine Arts (SIFA) is the premier organization in the San Francisco Bay Area dedicated to the promotion, preservation, and presentation of South Indian fine arts.

On a similar basis to the famous Thiagaraja Aaradhana in Thiruvaiyaru, SIFA- Bay Area is also hosting Thiagaraja Aaradhana Day - 2006 on Saturday Feb. 4, 2006 at the Center for Employment Training (CET in San Jose). Please look for more details at the SIFA website (
The whole function is a one day program starting with Pancharathna Keerthanaas rendering by singers and instrumentalists from 8-10.30 am, followed by rendering of Thiagaraja Keerthanaas by the South Indian community.

Who says that there is no T-day in the US? Indeed, living in the Bay Area caters to the needs of several communities of people, including lots of Carnatic music lovers.

Enjoy Bay Area Carnatic Music Lovers and Bloggers..................

Happy Friday and have a nice weekend!

Looking forward to it on coming Saturday, it will indeed be a different experience watching it for the first time.

Oh No, I am not singing, just helping out as a volunteer, my singing capabilities don't extend to performing on stage :)
