Ashavari Performing Arts is a 501(c) (3) non-profit founded by Indian Classical Music lover living in the San Francisco Silicon Valley in CA USA with a vision to provide a platform for musicians who have devoted their lives to the pursuit of Indian Classical Music. We aim to do this by organizing various music festivals throughout the year performed by top classical musicians from the US and India.

Our Mission

Ashavari Performing Arts aspires to provide a platform for all the musicians who have devoted their life to the pursuit of the age old tradition and legacy of Indian Classical Music. The platform will be open not only to world-renowned maestros but also to budding talents who will derive immense inspiration and encouragement by sharing the stage with the established and highly acclaimed senior artists. The platform seeks to provide a rich experience to the audience as well, by bringing them closer to refined music – music that purifies the soul and upholds the spirit of peace and humanity, rendering a sublime experience that readily connects one to that supreme divinity.

“Real music is not for wealth, not for honours or even the joys of the mind… but as a path for realization and salvation.”

Ustad Ali Akbar Khan

“The music that I have learned and want to give is like worshipping God. It’s absolutely like a prayer”

Pandit Ravi Shankar
