Following their memorable performance in Bourgie Hall in 2014, the Trio Karénine presents a panorama of 50 years of Russian music. Two Romantic works from the final years of the 19th century are matched with two other works composed after the turmoil of the Russian Revolution, which dramatically changed the way music was composed under the new Soviet regime.

Ayurvedic texts convey that the ‘source’ of all that exists in the universe was pure consciousness that had the will to manifest itself through the vibrational intention of primordial sound, mantra and language. Everything in the universe is in a flux of vibration or resonance. Naad Yoga is the yoga of sound. All experience has a sound whether one can hear or not; being conscious of that sound within ourselves enables us to shape our experience. Gundecha Brothers are the most famous exponents of Dhrupad style of singing, an art that represents the essentials of Naad Yoga. This music, which can be traced back several millennia to the vedic period in India, transports the singers as well as the listeners to an enhanced state of consciousness. This concert is highly recommended for all practitioners of yoga, meditation and classical music.
