Respected Sir / Madam,

The ‘Mantra meets Classic’ project is a non­commercial venture, reliant on the generosity of well­ wishers, donors and philanthropists. The “Dahara Vidhya Foundation” is a charitable trust that supports this project.

‘Shanmuga Kavacham’ a Tamil spiritual and literary gem, was written by Srimath Pamban Swamigal in 1891, and is a prayer seeking God’s protection of mankind from all dangerous and harmful forces.

Ganesh Kumar, L.T.C.L, a Western Classical Composer, based in Chennai, was attracted by the universal message contained within the Shanmuga Kavacham, and felt this work had to be shared with the wider world. It has always been Ganesh’s desire to create music that would inspire and elevate mankind. He therefore chose the Western Classical Choral format, most suited to depict divinity and which would transcend cultural barriers.

The world ­ renowned Chamber Choir of Europe is due to premiere this masterpiece under the baton of its founder/conductor Nicol Matt, in Germany, on the 20th of September 2015. Ganesh has also composed four additional choral pieces, based on other Indian mantras, on the personal request of Nicol Matt.

We are pleased to state that this project would feature the world’s first set of Choral mantras. These would be the first ever musical works from India, to adorn the Western Classical Choral repertoire. We feel honored and proud that they would represent sixty million Tamil people globally.

We would like to make a humble appeal for donations in support of this historic project. Kindly make your donations in favor of - Dahara Vidya Foundation.
