Svaram - Sonic Chi Circle (10 bars)

  • Beta: This is the smaller and therefore higher pitched version, which can be handheld and swung easily to create an extra Doppler Effect. It is light, handy, easily available, can be rolled up into a bundled cylinder and carry bag.

    Alpha: This covers the medium range and has a stronger and longer sustained sound due to its more solid measure and denser material. It can still be handheld but is easier to use mounted, as it is already heavier and larger than the smaller variant.


    Musical tones and vibrations and the silence in between have the ability to touch every layer of the being: physiological-emotional-psychological-intellectual-psychic-spiritual. The harmonic structure and matrix based on specific and simple proportions is present everywhere in the natural world from the tiniest particle movements of the microcosmos to the vast formations of the galaxies, and generates the formation and cycles of life expressions through its specific ratios. These ratios can also be understood as the relatedness of each to all and in musical language are represented through the intervals.

  • Initiated in 2003 as a grassroots community, rural development project in Tamil Nadu (India),  Svaram has been recognised by the UN Initiative “Music as a Global Resource” as one of its first 50 projects worldwide. The open association and team of over 50 local artisans, trainees, international volunteers and professionals has always retained its emphasis on the human element, its heritage and prospect of evolutionary change and positive progress.

    Initially focusing on communication-social-and craft-skill trainings with the practical core of hands on work with different materials like wood, metals, clay, bamboo and seeds/shells for instrument building, extensive explorations and a communal discovery process on the ‘magic of sound’ stimulated the growth of the team in ever unfolding and often surprising directions, creating a natural enthusiasm in everyone involved for the chosen work with the mystery and magic of sound!
