For the first time, SIFAS invites Maharashtra Mandal (Singapore) for an exclusive musical showcase of 100 minutes. MMS is proud and thankful for this opportunity.

We are equally excited to present a whole lot of new talent of singers & musicians who will present a programme on a topic close to the hearts of all maharashtrians - the songs of our Saints.


Santvani means words of the saints. Maharashtra is lucky to have a rich history of saints who worshipped Viththal - the reincarnation of Vishnu. Their devotional and philosophical songs brought about a huge social, cutural and spiritual revolution. They taught the values of compassion and selflessness to the humanity. They also taught everyone the difference between right and wrong in a language that was very easy to understand. They broke the barriers of caste and creed. They showed how to dedicate lives to the love of Viththal and see god in each human being, even animals.

The poems composed by Sant of maharashtra are known as Abhang - the thing that does not break. They are extremely easy to understand, sweet, simple yet powerful philosophies. Very easy to put into songs, Abhangvani has always formed a big part of marathi music heritage.

We are proud of our talented members who have put together this excellent programme by practising hard for last 2 months. The music, singing, compering is all by our members. We thank them for their dedication and passion.

Please come and witness the evening of musical devotion and rich heritage of the Santvani of Maharashtra on 13th August 6pm @ SIFAS auditorium.

The programme is FREE of charge.

Please share it with your friends and family. Be there in large numbers to encourage the performers.
