Organizing a show for Smt Sinchana Murthy was a great honour, especially with the ease at which she obliged to perform. Her performance created a spell-bound atmosphere, undoubtedly. The range of singing went from thumris to ghazals to qawwalis, the variations in style was so versatile and enjoyable, unlike any show that Bangalore has witnessed. Hope to host more shows for her! Hope to curate online shows too!

Business Development Executive,
Mrs Sinchana is a versatile singer and can carry classical as well as sugam sangeet with ease. I have had many opportunities to attend her live concerts and she takes us on a musical journey through her soulful singing. Wishing her abundance in all her endeavors.
Dr Sujata Bhagwat
I’ve been attending Sinchana’s concerts for the past 2 years, mainly her month end baithak and aangan mein Sargam. From the ambience of the concerts to organising them, she does it very well. From the musical aspect, she has a really melodious voice which is toned for Hindustani classical music, this along with the instrumentalists which she organises makes it a complete mix of music.
Janma Wellness Club,
“I was introduced to Sinchana and to her beautiful musical practice over 3 years ago by a mutual friend Veena a veteran dance teacher. Since then I have been a follower of Sinchana’s music concerts, forums and Baitak where I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. Those include Private and now remote sessions and they are all different each time. Each Sessions have been so useful to relieve stress and pain. I look forward to her sessions like nothing else! If you are considering making an investment in yourself, look no further. Sinchana’s voice is graceful and lovely.
I am grateful to my friend for having introduced us.
I Ravi Narayan being an entrepreneur in Health & Wellness Industry have benefited out of her musical healing counseling.
Sinchana, as the name in Kannada says, is a sprinkle. A sprinkle of calming aura that I’ve known her. I met this sweet voiced, loving hearted, mild mannered colleague way back in 2007-08. Ever since, I’m just in love with her singing, her zest to live life in exuberant, her venturing attitude and all.
She was in fact kind enough to accept my invitation to be a music teacher on my Teleradio Channel #KAMPANAANKA_TELERADIO .
I sincerely wish her all the very best to her future endeavors. May you stay happy, prosperous and see heights of success in whatever you do my dear Sinchana.
“Where words fail, music begins.”
“Music is an amusing poetry.”
From Hindustani vocal to Bhavageete, to Ghazal and Sugam Sangeet, the versatility in Sinchana’s voice is a gift of nature. Her sensibility, understanding and her open mind to experiment with dancers, understanding their requirement to produce the right mood and sanchari, introduced me to her talent and sensitivity.
Her sensibility in understanding the word to mood, mood to mood, word to word and the abstract expression in dance is due to her talent in dance too.
I have some pleasant memories of composing music for Kathak like taranas and some bandishes for NrityaDarpan, my academy in Bangalore. Her interpretations of Radha, Kunti, Draupadi and Jijabai is as amusing to me as they are to her. But, her inference that women made choices to deal with the situations and also to uphold their individuality explains her maturity, and in depth research in her approach to art and her dream to start “Shree Music School”.
She is conducting Bhajan, Bhakti geete and Shloka classes, in coordination with yoga and pranayama. Her scientific approach is equally effective and promotes a long term in depth foundation and nurturing of music for music lovers and learners.
It’s heartening to know her dream and mission to spread music in a holistic way through her institution, “Shree Music”, through the programs “Saantvana – Music Therapy”, “Sinchana – A platform to develop and appreciate Indian Music”, “Saadhana – Learn and explore Indian music”, “Spandhana – an outreach through music”; makes us feel proud of her and happy.
Sinchana hails from Shimoga, a cultural capital of Karnataka. After coming to Bangalore, she continued to spread and develop the joy of Indian music, making a mark in the Hindustani Music Circle.
We wish her lots of good luck in her mission and journey. May her divine voice give the joy and healing to learners, connoisseurs, listeners, promoters and artists of all genres. May her extraordinary talent give her a lot of success and her noble cause be achieved through Sri Music.
