Bhavik Haria to celebrate new bhajan album launch with UK-wide tour

Accomplished international musician and vocalist Bhavik Haria will launch his defining new album Sama – Songs of Virtue at London’s Nehru Centre on June 5 before embarking on a three-city UK tour starting with Birmingham.

Bhajan is a centuries old musical genre of devotional songs originating in India and Sama honours its essence. Bhavik will be playing music from Sama, performing with talented musicians, which includes a saxophonist and violinist, bringing traditional Indian and Western instruments to create a contemporary sound.

Bhavik Haria says: "Sama is a special album, that reflects a universal journey we all share – a search for connection, unity, and balance in a world that often feels chaotic. It goes beyond religious boundaries, to resonate universally with everyone, exploring themes of gratitude, compassion, and the power of forgiveness.

“It has also been a personal quest to instill the timeless tradition of Bhajans with a new perspective that resonates with today's generation and is part of my mission to #KeepBhajansAlive. Sama is music that explores unique compositions."

Sama – Songs of Virtue has been produced by Kaykay Chauhan with lyrics by Ajay Chandaran and is a production in partnership with Arts Council England and Atlantic Electrics.  The new album promises to take the listener on a soulful journey of transformation, transcending religious labels. The album explores gratitude, compassion, and the liberating power of forgiveness, important reflections in today’s troubled world. Sama is a UK-India production, where the sound includes celebrated musicians from the UK and India.

Returning from a sell-out tour of South Africa, Bhavik will be celebrating the album with a three-city UK tour this summer, that will include London, Birmingham, and Manchester. Bhavik has evolved the sacred vibration of bhajans to engage new audiences and his concerts are hugely popular drawing ethnically diverse people of all ages, from as young as 10 to 70 plus.

Mark Hoda, Chairman of the Gandhi Foundation, said: “In today’s conflict-torn world, we need more harmony. We are delighted to support Bhavik Haria’s new album, Sama, which perfectly aligns with our values to promote unity, peace, and balance. We are behind Sama’s journey for goodwill and compassion.”

The album carries forward Bhavik’s mission to #KeepBhajansAlive, which he successfully started in 2020, and to help further this work the album has a QR code which gives an English translation of the lyrics from Hindi.
