The Serene Swan

Mystical Music Experiences

The Serene Swan is a place where melody, rhythm and sacred verses come together in a confluence of harmony. We bring you devotional music – Kirtans, Bhajans, Vedic chants, Mantras and Meditations from India’s rich musical tradition. Our musical experiences are offered as musical albums, devotional music performances and educational workshops on sacred sound.

At The Serene Swan, we take a deep dive in to the Vedic knowledge that forms the basis of many traditional art forms. We also offer astrological counselling sessions for Self-empowerment based on the ancient science of Vedic Astrology. Immersive educational programs in Sanskrit are also on offer.

Come join us on a journey to the silence of your own Self. Come listen in…

The Serene Swan Arts...

Sai Ganesh Nagpal founded ‘The Serene Swan’ under which he promotes devotional music, Yoga and the study of Vedic philosophy. The Serene Swan Arts is currently engaged in artistic projects that bring the mystical and sacred alive through performances, film media and workshops.

Through educational programs for children, interactive musical sessions and collaborative artistic projects that bring together music, dance, and the written word, the artistic work of The Serene Swan is an endeavour to bring alive the knowledge of an ancient and mystical tradition.

Dear Visitor and Seeker,

All of the music on offer here at The Serene Swan web site is lovingly produced by Sai Ganesh Nagpal at The Serene Swan studio, an independent artistic initiative in India.

All of the paintings on this web site are created by Visual Artist and Film-maker Swapna Maini whose powerful visual themes beautifully compliment Sai Ganesh and Saraswati’s music.

We are a family immersed in the sharing and creation of art that has themes of Vedic knowledge, Nature conservation and Societal upliftment. We find that we are drawn to the creation of music and visual art that evokes qualities of ancient wisdom, sensitivity and Shakti in the world around us. When you support our art, you support the various social initiatives that we are engaged in as full time artists.

Our listeners and viewers often write to us, letting us know that the music and art bring them joy. Children as well enjoy themselves thoroughly in our artistic projects!

We are grateful that you stopped by here, and hope you will take back with you some moments of happiness!

We would love to hear from you…

Bhakti Sangeet (Devotional Music)

The ancient practice of Kirtan and Bhajan singing is the melodious rendition and often repetition of the divine name in song form. In the Vedic tradition, there are  different Devis and Devatas to sing about, all representing myriad aspects of nature and through nature – life herself! Whatever be the occassion, an immersion in melodious Kirtan singing brings alive the qualities of the divine within the devotee’s awareness. The experience of serenity, peace and inner strength are natural outcomes.

“Upon the musical canvas of Raag Desh, Sai Ganesh Nagpal has created an epiphany, a journey that flows, reverentially,  like an ancient river.”
