An organization of music lovers in the Triangle and Triad Areas of North Carolina

SIFAA is a non-profit organization that works to arrange and promote concerts and performances in the Triangle and Triad areas of North Carolina, supplementing those arranged by the Indian Classical Music and Dance Society, another organization in the area. SIFAA is supported by means of tickets, donations and underwriting by many enthusiasts of Carnatic music in the area.

SIFAA was started by a group of Carnatic Music Enthusiasts in the Triangle and Triad areas in 2002 who felt that there was a critical mass of rasikas in the area who could support more programs. We strive to bring at least four programs per year, aiming for well-known artists and upcoming highly talented artists. So far, we have featured artists such as Prof. T. N. Krishnan, Chitravina Ravikiran, Sanjay Subrahmanyan, Sowmya, T. M. Krishna, Bombay Jayashree, Vijay Siva, Ranjani-Gayathri, Manjunath-Nagaraj, Geetha Bennett, Smt. Ramani (veena), Master Balamuralikrishna, Palghat Ramprasad, Amrita Murali Calcultta Shankar and many others.

We also conducted Carantic Music competitions in the Triangle area in 2004, 2005 and 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 with overwhelming response.

Join us in our endeavor to bring more fine music to the area.
