Centre for the Craft, Art & Science of Sound

We bring together the rich tradition of Indian music and craft, international academic musicology, sound studies and research, contemporary design and innovation with the unique spiritual, futuristic aspiration of Auroville and its experiment of Human Unity in Diversity.

Initiated in 2003 as a grassroots community and rural development project in Tamil Nadu, SVARAM has been recognised by the UN Initiative “Music as a Global Resource” as one of its first 50 projects worldwide. The open association and team of over 80 local/global sound enthusiasts, artisans, craftsmen, designers, artists, healers, researchers, professionals, trainees and international volunteers has always retained its emphasis on the human element, its heritage and prospect of evolutionary change and positive progress.

“The aim of human life is to discover the Divine and to manifest it.”
