London: The spectacular fifth year celebrations of the London Saraswati Music Festival will be held this year on the 10 February at the Hariben Bachubai Nagrecha Hall in Leyton Road, London. The unique one-day music festival, organised by Sandyman, a world musician and DJ; will see the likes of rising star Priyesh Shah and the famous Juggy D share the stage alongside adults and children on dance, instrumentals and vocal performances.
“More than a 1000 people attend the remarkable musical festival every year to celebrate music, culture and diversity. We organise the event every year to get our younger generation connected to their roots,” said Sandyman.
Supported by the Hinduja Foundation, Anup Jalota Films, this year's celebration is powered by Guru Soundz Limited in association with Astha Care Limited, the unique one-day music festival is free and open for all to attend and is supported by fellow musicians from all UK communities.
The day starts with Saraswati puja in the morning, prior to the afternoon musical extravaganza followed by lunch. The organisers are happy for all to attend the puja and support the young participants by being there. Saraswati is the goddess of knowledge and performing arts. Indians worship the goddess for enlightenment and seek her blessings to excel in their academic and musical pursuits.
Last year, the event was graced by the legendary musician from India, Mr Bappi Lahiri.
The event is supported by key South Asian media Zee, B4U, MATV and Ion and sponsored by the Nagrecha Cash & Carry and several other Indian businesses that promotes Indian culture in the UK.
