Nimirndha Nannadai is the Singapore Indian Fine Arts Society (SIFAS) Alumni’s musical tribute to the indomitable spirit that blazed in the heart of the great Tamil poet, Mahakavi Subramania Bharathi. A spiritually rooted visionary, his revolutionary thoughts established him as one of the 21st century’s most relevant poets. As Bharathi’s death centenary is celebrated this year, we look to showcase his poems of self-confidence, determination, and societal progress.

Whether in the form of fiery exhortations to action, sage advice to young children, or reflective musings on the nature of life, his poetry has lent itself as inspiration to music, dance, theatre and film productions, as well as Tamil culture at large. For this concert, selected poems of Bharathi’s have been set to music composed by Dr Rajkumar Bharathi, great-grandson of the poet, and will be presented by an ensemble featuring both Indian classical vocals and instruments and Western instruments. The concert will also feature immersive projection, adding a visual dimension to the experience.
