Dhrupad's meditative concert, representing the oldest and most revered tradition of Indian classical music. For centuries, seers and yogis have used this musical form to offer prayers and transcend the mind. Dhrupad is an extensive musical system, based on the philosophy and yoga of sound, which manifests the inexpressible through the expression of rāga. Rāgas are understood as unique melodic entities, each having its own specific notes, name and character, and are deeply connected to the cycles of nature, the times of the day and the elements.

Simona Chalikovaite Apsara – Singer, performer, sound therapist and Indian classical singing teacher. From a young age she was trained in Western music education and graduated in Jazz studies. Later, for over a decade, she received rigorous training in the Dhrupad singing tradition with one of its most renowned exponents, Pt. Ritwik Sanyal, in Varanasi, India.

Her spiritual quest took her to India at a young age, where she diligently studied Vedic and yogic practices and philosophies.
He taught Indian classical singing at the Vicenza Conservatory, in Italy, and gives numerous workshops, masterclasses and concerts in several countries in Europe and India. A graduate in Indology, she also teaches Sanskrit literature and Vedic chanting and promotes Indian culture and philosophy. She is currently based in the Algarve.
