Sounds of the Sacred …

The concert will feature Agnikana – an all female vocal and instrumental ensemble to bring you a joyful, uplifting blend of Eastern, Western, classical and contemporary musical modes. The group members come mostly from the Czech Republic, but also from Slovakia, Austria and Switzerland.

Agnikana Group specialises in the musical compositions of Sri Chinmoy (pictured), a musical and spiritual luminary whose 22,000 compositions have profoundly influenced many contemporary musicians and established him as one of the most prodigious composer in history.

Ethereal music.

The music of Agnikana Group, which includes hauntingly beautiful arrangements of some of Sri Chinmoy’s finest work, carries with it a uniquely Indian flavour coupled with vocal and instrumental accompaniments that border on other-worldly.
