Varaveena

What would this world be without music? How can one imagine a world minus music for music is verily the elixir of life. Music is therapeutic, comforting, and most importantly it expands man's consciousness by opening up a whole new world, diverse, full of artistry. We are living in times of realization, of the magic of music. Music and man have been fellow travellers for eons now, so much so, that music is part of human civilisation and development.Science has amply demonstrated that the human mind responds to musical variations in different ways.

Where word fails music Speaks

Music has proved to be a mood booster, stress buster, memory and intelligence enhancer. The list is endless.This makes the job of preserving our music all the more consecrated. And that is exactly what happens at the Irinjalakuda based Varaveena School of Music located within the Valiya Thampuran Kovilakam on the northern side of the Koodalmanikkyam Temple.

The Valiya Thampuran Kovilakam, is a part of the Cochin Royal Family built by Shaktan Thampuran, over two centuries ago.It is interesting to note that the Valiya Thampuran Kovilakam at one time used to host Kathakali performances. Established during the blessed Navaratri time couple of years ago by Veena Artiste Srividya Varma, the Institute today has grown into an institute of repute and is considered one of the best in the arena......
