“Sama” Tour: A Magical Journey of Music and Connection

The “Sama” tour has come to a close, leaving a trail of vibrant memories and a renewed appreciation for the power of music. From Birmingham to Manchester, and finally ending in my hometown, London, the entire album launch and tour experience has been nothing short of incredible.

The response to the album and tour exceeded all expectations. This time around, we had screens displaying lyrics and translations at every concert, allowing the audience to not only sing along but also delve into the heart of the music and connect with the deeper meanings woven into each song from the new album.

The magic of music truly comes alive during a live performance. Seeing the audience clapping and singing along to each song, created an unforgettable vibe at each concert. It was truly a collective experience, a beautiful symphony of voices and emotions.

The most heartwarming aspect of the tour has been the personal connections forged through the music. I’ve been overwhelmed by messages expressing how each song resonated with them on a personal level, forging their own unique connection to the music. Even those who wouldn’t normally consider themselves Bhajan or devotional music enthusiasts have been touched by the album’s magic, discovering a love for this rich musical tradition.

The “Sama” tour is just the first ripple in a larger movement. I aim to bring Bhajan concerts to the forefront of the music scene, driving my mission to #KeepBhajansAlive. I am so grateful to everyone who has joined me on this journey so far and I look forward to creating more music that connects and inspires.

Exclusive Sama Album Premier hosted by Atlantic Electrics

Atlantic Electrics hosted an exclusive premiere event to celebrate a special milestone for “Sama”. This intimate gathering offered the first chance to hear every track from the album in its entirety.

The atmosphere was electric (pun intended!), and the feedback we received was nothing short of phenomenal. The highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the feedback! Hearing the positive reactions and engaging conversations about “Sama” was truly phenomenal. It was a special night of shared passion for music, and a fantastic way to kick off the album’s journey.

A huge shoutout goes to KEF for providing the incredible Blade Series speakers. Their crystal-clear sound truly brought the music to life, allowing our guests to fully immerse themselves in the world of “Sama.”

This pre-launch event was a fantastic way to generate anticipation for the official album launch, which took place at the prestigious Nehru Centre.

Sama Album Launch at the Nehru Centre, Mayfair

The prestigious Nehru Centre in London’s Mayfair hosted the official launch of “Sama” on 5th June 2024. Music lovers, members of the press, and many new faces filled the room, creating an atmosphere of anticipation and excitement.

Sharing a few select tracks from “Sama” wasn’t just a performance; it was a chance to witness the magic come alive. The positive reactions in the room were truly incredible, a testament to the power of music to connect and inspire.

The evening was further enriched by the inspiring words of support from Hedley Swain and Professor Atul Shah, both luminaries in their own right. The engaging Q&A session that followed allowed for a deeper exploration of the themes and creative journey behind “Sama.”

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who attended – your support made this launch truly unforgettable.

Mahavir Jayanti Reception at 10 Downing Street

Honoured to have attended the first-ever Mahavir Jayanti Reception at No. 10 Downing Street, held to celebrate the birth of Lord Mahavir, the 24th and final Tirthankara (spiritual leader) of Jainism. This historic event marked a significant moment for the Jain community in the UK, showcasing their growing presence and contributions to British society.

Hosted by Deputy Prime Minister Rt Hon Oliver Dowden MP, Lord Dolar and Ameet Jogia., the reception brought together prominent figures and members of the Jain community. 

The reception concluded with a group recitation of the Navkar Mantra, a beautiful Jain prayer, led by Jayeshbhai, Minister of Jain Religion of Oshwal Association of the UK.

Attending this event was a truly inspiring experience, not only because it celebrated Jain culture and acknowledged the community’s contributions to the UK, but also because it served as a reminder of the importance of Jain values and their positive impact on society.

In the spirit of sharing Jainism’s deeper beauty, I delved deeper during August 2022’s Paryushan festival. Over eight days of live bhakti sessions, I explored various Jain themes and Stavans. 

This ultimately sparked the creation of my 2023 album, “Purity.” a collection of Jain Stavans, features captivating music and meaningful lyrics, aiming to spread the message of peace and compassion throughout the world. We wanted everyone to experience these ancient Jain Stavans, so we released lyric videos and translated social media content. Now, people from all backgrounds can sing along and discover the beautiful messages within.

Want to experience the uplifting power of Jain Stavans? Head over to my YouTube channel and revisit the inspiring live sessions from the 2022 Paryushan festival. Additionally, you can find the “Purity” album on all major streaming platforms

New musical collaboration ‘Tere Siva Prabhu’

A spiritual collaboration

Following their individual successes in capturing audiences with their heartfelt music, Bhavik Haria and Rita Morar have teamed up on their new spiritual release ‘TERE SIVA PRABHU’ which from Hindi, translates to ‘No one but you my lord’. Along with music produced by Dhani, the single is now available across digital streaming platforms.

“Producing and recording ‘TERE SIVA PRABHU’ has been a deeply spiritual journey for me, a soulful exploration of devotion and connection with the divine. Collaborating with the exceptionally talented Rita Morar, and Dhani on the music production has elevated this experience, infusing each note with a profound sense of reverence and beauty. This song, a Sai Bhajan, resonates with the universal longing for solace and guidance in times of need. It’s a humble offering, a heartfelt prayer from the depths of the soul, seeking refuge in the divine presence.

As an artist dedicated to preserving the rich tradition of devotional music, ‘TERE SIVA PRABHU” embodies my mission to #KeepBhajansAlive, reminding us of the timeless power of spiritual expression through music.” – Bhavik

A dream truly come true

What is a Bhajan? Bhajans developed with the Bhakti movement thousands of years ago. Ideas from scriptures, legendary epics and the teachings of saints are the typical themes of Bhajans.

To every single one of you that supported my this show, from sharing it on social media, attending the events, sending me messages about how you found it/how it made you feel – thank you all so much. You all play an instrumental part in driving the Keep Bhajans Alive mission.
