We would like to thank all the artists, partners, collaborators, volunteers, and of course our lovely audience for a beautiful Stockholm Sangeet Festival 2022!

Stockholm Sangeet Sabha
In our efforts to create a platform for raga based music in Stockholm we are now introducing a concert series in addition to the yearly festival. The idea is to have a natural gathering place where we can enjoy a concert by featured artists followed by an open stage where anyone performing something related to raga is welcome to enter the stage. These gatherings will take place at Restaurant Ellora and the entrance is free.

As a gift we will be uploading one great audio recording from our archives each day from Christmas Eve until New Year’s. During the history of the festival we have had so many great concerts by international masters, and this is a chance to relive some of the magic. The concerts will be posted to our Youtube channel 24th to 31st at 6 pm CET each day.
Thank you all for a great festival!
We would like to thank all our artists, partners, collaborators, volunteers, and most importantly, you in the audience for the amazing 15 year jubilee of Stockholm Sangeet Festival we had now in 2021! Music is returning to stage and the attendance this year was extraordinary. We had six different events spread over two weeks and we were extremely happy to see that the interest in the festival is growing.
