Our Emblem
 

The emblem of Sangam Kala Group is deeply rooted in our country's rich cultural heritage. It is a design synergy of the 'S' in English and "I" in Devanagri, marking the first letter of 'Sangam Kala Group' in both languages.

Stands for 'Sangeet' - music, the promotion of which is the primary objective of the Group. The Group believes that music is the essence of life and without music, the world would come to a standstill.

Is the first 'sur' or 'swara', which forms the basis of music and without which the other notes of the octave cannot be conceived.

Stands for 'Sanskriti' - our culture, which is full of riches - both discovered and undiscovered.

Stands for "Sangam" - merger. The group promises a prestigious forum for the widely scattered budding talent of our country to come out from oblivion.

Stands for 'Saraswati', the Goddess of Music in Hindu mythology. Saraswati is also symbolic of the talent which gains recognition once it joins other rivers of 'Sangam'.

The emblem depicts a 'Hansa', the Indian water bird and also Goddess Saraswati's 'Vahana', whose very movement is as melodious as the notes of a musical rhyme.

The star in the emblem is symbolic of those talented artists, who though from a distance appear hazy, are brighter than our Sun when watched closely.

The emblem is a merger of a Sa and k, the alphabets of the scripts of two different languages, confirming the Group's belief that music knows no language barriers, Music alone, by itself, is the only universal language.
