"Heartiest congratulations to the team at Shruthi UK on making the Thyagaraja Festival a highlight of its events calendar. Music of the Singing Saint is rejoiced by those in India and abroad and he is indeed a pride, among many, of our great nation. And with the 2017 UK-India Year of Culture, this event is of particular significance, one which makes us all so proud of our cultural roots and ancestral heritage."
The Birmingham Thyagaraja Festival 2022 was held in a virtual mode in 2021 due to the pandemic. But the fact that the festival is in its 7th year goes on to show the ample success it has had in previous years- in bringing together the music community, dance fraternity and all the art lovers all around Europe and world,.I extend my heartfelt felicitations to Dr.Chithra Ramakrishnan and ShruthiUK for organising the Birmingham Thyagaraja Festival This is also an opportunity for all of us to pay homage to the singing saint and composer Thyagaraja.
