CARNATIC CONSERVATORY

OF PARIS

It has been Bhavana and her husband Pradyumna Kandadai's ever focused endeavor to find ways to contribute a drop to the ocean of Carnatic Music. Carnatic Conservatory of Paris (CCP) is one such initiative based in Paris, France. CCP creates new platforms, brings together artists, collaborates with new artists and legends alike, presents highest quality of music and collaborates with artists of high quality, with whom CCP can take the beauty of Carnatic Music and Indian Arts to a world audience. CCP offers two major Calendar events to provide a platform for talent and also collaborate with high quality artists, legends.

It celebrates the annual aradhana of saint composer Tyagaraja. Carnatic musicians from all over the world descend and pay homage to the saint. The aradhana is observed on Pushya Bahula Panchami day, when the saint attained samadhi.

According to the tradition, every year, musicians and devotees pay homage to Sri Tyagaraja by rendering his Pancharatna kritis, the five jewels.

Nritya Naada is a brain child of Bhavana to create an international platform to bring together artists and allow for new collaborations.

Bhavana has successfully collaborated with artists in India and Europe to present soulful events.

This event is organised to provide a high quality platform for touring artists with high calibre in Paris. It is completely presented in Sanskrit and French. One of the concepts is to bring the purity of dance and music to provide an ethereal experience to audiences. This gives a very private sense and apt for Parisian audience to understand the nuances of both fields individually whilst performing together.

COLLABORATION WITH UNESCO

Carnatic Conservatory of Paris is part of the Permanent Delegation of India at UNESCO, curating cultural events.

RAGA AND YOGA

A concept  pioneered by Bhavana Pradyumna.  It  was  conceptualised with  a  vision:  to beautifully  confluence  the melody  of Raga  with  the poise of Yoga.  Yogis and  Yoginis  would  perform  yoga, while Raag aalaap, and  Mantra  chantings  would  blend in, to  create positive vibrations, and  a peaceful  experience
