Our Team

SAHANA, in Sanskrit, refers to a raga in classical Indian music, and contains the ethos of freedom and patience.

The organization of SAHANA was formed to nurture and promote awareness of South Asian heritage by creating opportunities for the community and our youth in the Greater Sacramento Area.  It is our hope that through SAHANA there can be a deeper understanding and appreciation of  the rich heritage of the South Asian cultures in our community.

SAHANA's board members and advisory committees represent a cross-section of individuals dedicated to the promotion of SAHANA's goals and committed to make a positive contribution to the Greater Sacramento area through the activities of SAHANA.

SAHANA serves as a window to the South Asian community in the Greater Sacramento area.  There is a multitude of talent in the community that we hope a larger audience will be able to enjoy through SAHANA.  The SAHANA calendar of events will keep the community informed of events that are open to the public. These events will include dance, drama, recitals, talent competitions, workshops, readings, instrumental and vocal music events.  SAHANA serves a dual purpose for the general public to access information, as well as organizations to distribute event information.  

All local artists are welcome to join hands with SAHANA. Together, we can provide an environment for education and an opportunity to participate for our future generation. They can learn about the South Asian culture through fine arts and music.  These activities can help individuals to acquire self confidence and gain poise and wellness.

There are no limits to activities such as dance, music and the fine arts and SAHANA encourages you to contribute by participating, performing, and sponsoring our events.  We welcome you to join our growing team.
