CMANA-Narada Gana Sabha Youth Festival
CMANA, Carnatic Music Association of North America, established in 1976, is a Non-profit Organization (TAX ID 11-2654179) registered in New York and New Jersey. CMANA’s mission and charter is to serve as a cultural-bridge that promotes and propagates the learning, understanding, performing, and appreciation of the Carnatic style of Indian Classical Music and related fine arts in North America.

Narada Gana Sabha (NGS) is a premiere cultural organization of Chennai promoting classical arts for over fifty years and has been a strong partner of CMANA lending support to it in many ways. Performance at and recognition from the Narada Gana Sabha have catapulted many in their careers as performing artists whose respect for the organization is based on its commitment to the arts, service, and integrity. We expect our collaboration with NGS to open doors for talented Carnatic musicians from North America.
