Join Shivam Rath, Sangeet Mishra and Maharshi Raval for the Soul Sangeet Sound Session that will take you from one end of the Rainbow Raga to the other!
With a 22 string guitar/sitar and a crystal ball Shivam Rath is sliding up to be one of Australia’s greatest slide guitarists.
Plus we are particularly delighted to welcome back 8th generation Sarangi Meastro Sangeet Mishra back to Australia for his third international Soul Sangeet tour with Shivam.
Sangeet Mishra is a world famous Sarangi player & hails from 8 generations of Sarangi players plus World Music Vocalist Mico Sundari from Japan & Massimo Bidin from Italy on Tabla.
Soul Sangeet is a new term with a Sanskrit twist. The concept is inspired by Indian Classical music but presented for a wider world. For the past few years Shivam Rath has been developing this world music culture with a particular passion for universal sound healing & ancient mantras. In all his travels across the world he feels that Indian Classical imbibes most of his preferred qualities with its vast spectrum of emotions, speeds & subtleties, its deeply devotional and vedic philosophy plus its inherent nearness to nature within the mystical world of Raga & its mastery of Tala (time/rhythm)

Sangeet means sound or music in Sanksrit and follows a deep belief of spirit in sound; hence Soul Sangeet. Since diving into the world music sphere Shivam now blends a unique 22 string slide guitar/sitar gliding with a crystal ball. This fusion instrument symbolises a cross culture of harmony in sound and music; inspiring Shivam to create these unique events and facilitate this process on a wider scale and reach a wider audience. Each event incorporates different musicians, instruments, vocalists and international guests bridging the gap between world and local music; establishing a wider world music culture.
About the artists:
Sangeet Mishra on the Sarangi; an ancient Indian Violin acclaimed to be 5000 years old. Sangeet Mishra himself while not as old still hails from 8 generations of Sarangi players, coming from Banaras or Varanassi India. Those who know of the Indian Classical world will also understand how rare an instrument this is because of its difficulty to play and master, meaning there are literally only a handful of accomplished classical Sarangi players in the world. He has toured internationally most countries over and the Australian shores almost 20 separate times as a professional artist.
Accompanying on Tabla is Massimo Bidin originally from Italy. He begun his journey with Tabla and Indian classical music studying at the Conservatorium of Vicenza. Over the years he has been traveling to India and has attended numerous workshops with various renowned tabla Maestros in India, Europe and Australia
He has been living in Melbourne for the last decade developing as an upcoming tabla player and world music percussionists in Australia. He is competent in Indian Classical and semi classical structures, devotional bhajans, mantra music as well as modern contemporary fusions.
Mico Sundari resonates with Japan’s Shinto (animist) spiritual heritage. She has been receiving vocal tuition in Indian Classical Music from Gina Sala and Taro Terahara. Mico utilises her voice to produce an other-worldly atmosphere and approach to musical expression. She has held workshops to teach voice therapy and singing across many countries, in various musical styles, with a particular emphasis on kirtan. She is fastidious about correct Sanskrit pronunciation because of her belief in the innate power of sound. Her voice itself is a natural wonder to behold.
Shivam Rath while not quite 8 generations is a second generation Aussie Indian Musician, following his fathers footsteps in both the world of Yoga and Indian classical music and since seriously taking up the path is sliding up to be Australia’s leading Slide Guitarist. Born into a musical family he has been combining his knowledge and path of meditation into the classically trained field of Music, Mantra and raga. He is also writing and producing his own music and compositions, with many C.Ds bridging, reviving and blending the ancient arts and music into our modern world.
