Bardai Brahmin Samaj Leicester (UK) Music Group – Jai Bardai Melodies
The Leicester Bardai Brahmin Samaj is very proud to have its own music group whose members support Bhajan and Navratri programmes on a volunteer basis. The group has often been described as the Samaj’s Jewel in the Crown due to its long establishment, performances and commitment of members.
In 2002, the Federation of Sri Bardai Brahmin Samaj proudly awarded Jai Bardai Melodies with a Local Samaj Award for Contribution to the Samaj.
Jai Bardai Melodies has been in existence since 1990 after being formed by a group of samaj members interested in singing and performing music. Although the group consists of a core group of founder members, over the years, it has welcomed dedicated members interested in music. Any Samaj member interested in any aspect of performing from controlling the sound system to playing the manjiras, is encouraged. The concept of teamwork is highly encapsulated in the group.
Traditional bhajans and Raas Garbas are performed to a high standard. The group functions under the umbrella of the management committee.
Any samaj member interested in joining the group can contact the group using the contact link on this website. A requisite for joining the group is that members attend practice sessions on a regular basis.
