Swartaal, Jagriti’s annual festival of classical music & dance is a celebration of the classical performance arts and the rich tradition of music, dance & theatre that has been honed over centuries in India.

As a performance space, Jagriti strives to support the classical arts through concerts by some of the best exponents of the form, giving Bangalore audiences a chance to experience and support art forms that are a true celebration of India’s rich artistic & cultural heritage.

Since its first edition in 2017, Swartaal has hosted performances by Bombay Jayshree, National Awardee Bindhumalini Narayanswamy, Gundecha Brothers, Mallika Sarabai, Revanta Sarabai, Kalamandalam among others.

At the Festival this year, we will host performances in Yakshagana, Hindustani Classical and Kathak.


Jagriti is a Performance Arts space dedicated to Theatre, Music, Dance and Comedy. Founded in 2011 by Arundhati and Jagdish Raja, the space has hosted several productions from India and around the world. A 200-seat theatre, built around a full-thrust stage, it is fully equipped to cater to both artistes and audience. The main stage is designed for intimate performances with adjoining spaces for informal lectures and gatherings. Jagriti is owned and operated by the not-for-profit ART Foundation, a registered charitable trust.

The Rooftop - above the main auditorium is an open-to-sky space with a staging area that can accommodate about 50 people. A raised and walled off platform can work as a perfect area for puppet theatre. The Rooftop has a restroom and a pantry. 

The Terrace - alongside the auditorium, the Terrace can accommodate about 20 people as an informal gathering area.

Lumbini - extending out from the foyer, Lumbini has a stage and an open-to-sky terraced space for about 80 people.
