Sangit, the Group
Sangit is the word for music in Sanskrit. It is composed from two sub words: San and Gita. San is from Sam, together (ensemble, samen, same…) and Git is for Gita, sing. So Sangit means sing together.
Originally Sangit was the name given to the Sangit Academy of Music in Brussels, founded by Daniel Schell and Pierre Narcisse. Soon they invited sitar player Ashok Pathak to participate and also the tabla player Sandip Bhattacharya.
Here is their concert in Brussels , Botanique in 1997, courtesy of Entrevues (Communauté Française de Belgique) .
That was almost the foundation of the Academy, but is was followed by many other concerts with guests of the Sangit Academy.
