Shree Ramaseva Mandali organizes music fests every year in Bangalore, Karnataka. 60 years ago S.V. Narayanaswamy Rao founded Shree Ramaseva Mandali to celebrate Ramnavami. Several song and dance performances were held to mark the first year. From then on every year the mandali unfailingly organizes a musical night for the Bangaloreans.
The concert provides the music lovers a golden opportunity to listen to Indian Carnatic Music. Though it is one of the oldest forms of music in India yet its popularity is evaporating with each passing year.
