„Don’t analyse. Listen with your heart and not with your intellect.“
- Sri Swamiji
Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji is an Indian musician and yoga Master. He has explored the impact of music on all kinds of living beings for over three decades. Sri Swamiji's music is grounded in the ancient music system of India – which is thousands of years old – and yet it still continues to fascinate listeners around the world. The rules this music follows are timeless and unfold their refreshing power when listeners can open themselves to it. Sri Swamiji invites people not to analyse, but to experience the music – only then can His music realize its full potential and results.
For over 30 years Sri Swamiji and His musicians have been giving concerts all over the world. In 1987 they were in the West for the first time – in the Netherlands – and since then they have played in very prestigious concert halls like the Royal Albert Hall in London, the Lincoln Center in New York, the Esplanade in Singapore or the Tonhalle Zürich. The two biggest concerts until now with an audience counting more than 100,000 people took place in the Lal Bahadur stadium in Hyderabad, India, in 1996 and 2006.
One of the concerts took place in the Sydney Opera House on April 6th in 2015. There were over 1800 active participants and this event was awarded the Guinness World Record for being the biggest music therapy session worldwide. The concerts have a meditative character and promote relaxation. Sri Swamiji Himself recommends sitting in a comfortable position during the concert and letting oneself be open to the music He considers to be medicine. When the mind is calmed, the music has best chance to take full effect.
All are welcome to see, to listen to and to experience Sri Swamiji and His musicians Jaitra Varanasi, Shankar Ramesh, Mani Tadepalli and Mahesh Bhatt on 15th August 2020 at 7.30 pm in the Jupiter Hall of Crowne Plaza Hotel in Neuss near Duesseldorf, Germany.
The proceeds of the concert will support different social projects established by Sri Swamiji.
