The breath and depths of the concert & the bhajans was phenomenal. Each artist was amazing in their own unique way and together, they truly elevated each other. Composition was on point! For me, my roots have always meant alot, they keep me grounded and is a strong part of my identity, so this truly was the best way to spend a Soulful Sunday afternoon…bhajans and reflection will always be a match made in heaven for me. The true icing on the cake was spending quality, heart and soul nourishing time with our loved ones that love bhajans as much as we do.

Second time at Roots & Change and loved it the same and more this time. Thanks again @bhavikharia & team for capturing the moment through a touching and connecting Bhajan concert 💜

You and the rest of the team should be immensely proud of yourselves, you are shining a light on bhajans in a manner never seen or heard before. My children think it’s normal to attend a bhajan concert – you have have made it so.

It was worth all the miles and time travelling from rural Shropshire along with my manjiras. Phenomenal sounds from each skilled instrumentalist combining traditional bhajans by Bhavik. The whole composition made it a unique experience. Well done for reinventing the bhajans as a concert concept. Thought @kaykay_chauhan_music was very engaging and friendly with the audience during the interval. What an easy going fellow without any airs and graces he was.

I recently attended Samaya – A Musical Journey Through Time (04-02-2017) which was held at Shishukunj Bhavan (London). I travelled all the way from Wellingborough with my wife Rina. I have been following Bhavik on social media for some time, so I knew what to expect. However, my wife had no idea… Simply put, she was blow away but the professionalism and the quality of the entire team. We both thoroughly enjoyed the evening, it actually felt that 4 hours was not long enough. If you are looking to hire a Group, then I would definitely recommend Bhavik Haria and team.

Bhavik Harias Roots & Changes project is so uplifting I felt as if I ended up in the rafters of the church he was playing in! Such a mix of heady sounds and colours emanated from the band in a free flowing, devotional, swirling, glorious sound. A rare talent indeed.

Birmingham show was amazing! The vibes and responses. Some of the bhajans that were sang along with audience singing were like no other videos you have out. Looking forward to watching the concert on YouTube again if possible. God bless 👏

Bhavik’s stunning presentation of much-loved bhajans combined with western musical styles was simply magical, carefully maintaining a heartfelt sense of bhakti throughout that audience members of our all backgrounds could relate to. The show was not only a mesmerisingly beautiful performance, but also an incredible example of how culture can be preserved and transmitted to future generations.

The Roots and Changes concert by Bhavik Haria and his musicians at Colchester Arts Centre on Sunday was a feast for the ears. On a very cold British afternoon I was transported back to the warmth and sights and fragrance of a Gujarati afternoon by the lake in Jamnagar. All of the musicians are masters of their craft and the enjoyment with which they played was evident. Bhaviks singing was so lyrical and expressive that even though we speak different languages the meaning of the songs was clear. A truly memorable afternoon and one I hope to repeat before too long.

Bhavik Haria and his talented team of musicians inspired unequivocal joy when they brought Roots & Changes LIVE to Colchester on Sunday. His intertwining of traditional Indian ragas and contemporary Western music is ingenious. The performance was infectious; I found myself smiling throughout and felt so uplifted. Colchester Arts Centre provided the perfect setting – the sound filled the space and the atmosphere was one of positivity and peace. Bhavik’s voice is soul-fulfilling and words are not enough to convey the impact his performance had on all of those present. It was brilliant.

What a fabulous night at Junoon. Great music by truly talented young artists. Love how you cover the eras of Bollywood from the golden oldies to the more recent music. Bhavik’s version of ‘Piya Ghar Aavenge’ will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up … Simply amazing!

I wanted to take a moment to send you a big Thank You message. Your performance was just incredible, what a voice! The band are so talented and amazing. This will be a memory that will stick with us forever. Your singing brought so much happiness to the room and really made it special for my everyone including my mum who listens to your Bhajans every night.

My heartfelt thanks to Bhavik and the musicians on the wonderful performance on Sunday 18th Feb 2024, Rugby, Warwickshire. We were all mesmerised by Bhavik and Rekahben’s soulful singing where many were able to join in with the singing too. The Bhajans were spot on and very emotional as Bhavik touched on all my Dad’s favourites but also many other songs too. We were all in awe of the Enthusiasm and beautiful performance. A truly memorable afternoon and one I hope to repeat before too long. Truly Inspiring.

Bhavik has a beautiful, soulful voice and aura. He created exactly the atmosphere that we hoped for at our event and was a pleasure to deal with throughout the booking process. You can tell how much he enjoys singing when you see him performing. Everyone including my family and friends thoroughly enjoyed the singing and the music (including the tabla that accompanied him). I would book Bhavik again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend him, if you book you won’t be disappointed! Thanks so much Bhavik!

I had arranged for Bhavik to perform at an event to commemorate my parents. Bhavik was brilliant from start to finish, his advice and guidance in selecting the most appropriate bhajans was spot on and the performance on the day was absolutely amazing. My family and friends were mesmerised by Bhavik and his team and could not be more complimentary. Everyone had enjoyed the performance including the younger adults/kids who did not really understand the bhajans but nevertheless loved the live performance.

Bhavik performed a variety of bhajans, Mehfil songs and golden oldies for my dad’s 20 year anniversary. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Bhavik and friends, they are respectful, professional and come with such wonderful talent as a group. Everyone who came commented on Bhavik’s wonderful voice and the afternoon was one to remember. I can’t thank you all enough as you made our event truly memorable.

Thank you so so much for the beautiful performance at our wedding! It added the perfect ambience and our guests loved it! It really brought a piece of India to the day which was exactly what we wanted given that we got engaged there. From your traditional dress, welcoming and friendly demeanour to the incredible sounds you produced, we absolutely loved having you guys a part of our special day. Cannot recommend you enough!

I watched Bhaviks YouTube videos and knew from then that he was the one I wanted, performing Bhajans at my house. From the moment I booked him until the moment the event finished yesterday, everything went smoothly. He was so easy to talk to and always on hand if i had any questions. Bhavik is such a humble person. My mother in law wanted a bhajan sang for her, and he learnt the words especially for her. A moment i don’t think my mother in law will forget. When he sings, you go on the journey with him. Such a soulful voice. Thank you again from Neil and I, to bringing such calm, serenity and blessings into our home.

An amazing evening in memory of our late father/grandfather. We were immersed in soulful bhajans throughout. Bhavik performs with such purpose, passion and ease, which embraces the whole family with a sense of peace and tranquility. His wide selection of bhajans are carefully chosen in line with our requests, all of which sung beautifully. With any of his performances, he always exceeds our expectations. We have been inundated with family and friends saying how they have enjoyed the bhajans. Thank you Bhavik for all your support during this difficult time.

I would like to thank Bhavik for doing a surprise Zoom Mehfil for my husband’s 60th birthday in this surreal times. I contacted Bhavik 10 days before the event and he was very helpful and the invite was created within days. He has such a soulful voice and kept everyone engrossed. Everyone enjoyed it so much. I had my doubts how it would sound on Zoom having attended few Zoom events and the singing & instrumental would not sync. I should not have worried as Bhavik sounded so good while playing his harmonium. I would definitely recommend Bhavik and will surely call him for another event.

Bhavik recently performed some bhajans for the passing of a relative at short notice. It was on Zoom, and it was extremely well received by all. Given the COVID-19 lockdown situation he necessarily had to perform solo. He is such a wonderful singer, and self-confident, that not having backing musicians did not detract from the performance and in reality, it was a vastly more meaningful recital. Bhavik was recommended to me by a funeral director relative of mine and so he already came highly praised and I add my voice to say that I will not hesitate to engage Bhavik again, not just for a sad occasion but for other life celebrations too. When I contacted him he was very professional and sensitive about the situation I was in and I felt confident that it was one less thing that I had to worry about in the turmoil of my loss. The Zoom venue allows for messages to be sent live by viewers and Bhavik provided those and a recording of the bhajans after the event and that just made it all perfect.

We booked Bhavik Haria very last minute for our grandfathers prathnas after numerous recommendations on Facebook. Minutes after confirming timings and dates with him, he had already arranged a beautiful and professional invite for the prathna and with that, we knew we were in safe hands. The bhajans themselves were beautiful and we have received numerous compliments from all who joined. Bhavik has an amazing, soulful voice and we were blessed to have him there with us.

Bhavik was fantastic to deal with from start to finish. In a world where we are having to rapidly adapt to remember our loved ones, he was able to use technology to perfectly carry out a remembrance service for my father on Zoom, ensuring all participants were muted, an appropriate invite was created and ready to send within the day and a selection of bhajans that my father would have liked were used. We were able to communicate and sort everything out within a few hours and he handed over control to the correct people exactly when required during the prayers.

Thank you for making the best out of a difficult situation – I recommend Bhavik to all, especially for the brilliant use of technology whilst we are unable to connect in person.

Bhavik preformed bhajans for the passing of my masi in Portugal. Through the power of technology, his bhajans brought some comfort to our family in Portugal and the wider world. As always, grateful for his work and commitment. 🙏🏽

Bhavik recently hosted virtual bhajans for us via Zoom after we sadly lost a family member. Before the bhajans he managed to learn a number of new bhajans (within the space of a few days) and sang each one beautifully. We had over 100 individuals join from all over the globe, and after the bhajans we were flooded with messages praising Bhavik. Due to Covid-19, we weren’t able to give the send off we wanted but Bhavik brought us all together and made the bhajans that little bit special. Heartfelt thank you!

We booked Bhavik and his band as entertainment for one of our corporate events and I couldn’t be happier with their performance. Bhavik and Rekha are amazing singers and our guests thoroughly enjoyed their performance. Working with the entire team was a delight, Bhavik is extremely professional, responsive and really works with you on what you need and how you would like your event to go. You honestly won’t be disappointed booking with Bhavik!

We loved having Bhavik and his team perform at our Hindu wedding at the Haveli, Bhaktivedanta Manor. He worked with us to curate a list of songs he’d perform on the day based on our ceremony which was really helpful to do before hand. He also was happy to have a conversation with our priest ahead of time so they could work through logistically how the ceremony would run smoothly. On the day, Bhavik and his team setup early so they were ready for the event. We had so many comments from our guests about how his music added something so spiritual, holy and different to the Hindu ceremony and for us as a couple it was so beautiful and peaceful to hear songs we knew on our Hindu wedding day. Thank you so much Bhavik and team for the amazing performance, I’d recommend anyone to have him for their own wedding!
