‘Singer with the golden voice’ –The Hindustan Times

'Regarded by many as one the foremost exponents of the Carnatic vocal tradition in Europe' – Asian Culture Vulture

Carnatic music is considered as a very personal and spiritual journey along the quest for ultimate reality and the poetry in the songs reflects a highly sophisticated approach.

Sunanda Sharma - No stranger to the UK stage having worked with the AMC over the last 20 years or so, Sunanda has over the years established herself as one of India’s foremost performers of THUMRI. She studied with the legendary late Girija Devi. She has also established herself as a wonderful teacher running the AMC summer schools in the art of thumri over many years.

Sunanda will be performing her beloved thumri in praise of Krishna  but she will also  be singing bhajans  from the repertoire of Mirabai, Kabir, Surdas.  BHAJAN  is the devotional song of the Hindu religion. There have been numerous composers of the poetry representing the pure surrender to and love felt by the poet for God.
