Who Are We

Our Approach

The idea of Suranjali Canada regarding capturing and maintaining the Indian cultural music in North America is simple, yet powerful. We follow a two-step strategy: First of all, our repertoire includes a vast choice of educational programs, which enlighten students on the importance and cultural background of Indian music. Second, we establish friendly performance opportunities by which the new composing talents can perform. This is especially important for both the generation that is currently alive and the future generations, making them relate, enjoy, and appreciate the culture of India.

In one of our major categories of educational workshops, Young learner is a concept that we target in our delivery of services. Since its establishment in 2018, we have conducted many workshops with established singers and musicians from the United States of America and Canada. These sessions are not only tutoring on how to play the music but also giving useful tips on performing in public. In addition, SURANJALI presents appreciation courses based on the goal of producing discriminating listeners and providing information about Indian classical music.

After redevelopment in 2018, the organization has contributed to two annual large-scale concerts which are conducted in auditoriums.

Indeed, to flatten the curve, some restrictions such as maintaining social distance and avoiding mass gatherings have been implemented which has forced us to conduct virtual events. These online events have increased the company’s range, as it became possible to present more Indian artiste, such as musicians from India, Bangladesh, and Canada.

For our past performances, you may view more details under the Event tab on this website through the Past Events link or prefer the Facebook fan page.
