With a unique style of composing through improvisation, 'Sareni' is a UK based vocal group, who create contemporary music with a classical twist. 'Sareni' bring together a burst of creative ideas, giving every piece an element of the unexpected.
Exploring beyond musical boundaries, 'Echoes' is our first single, discovered by fusing Asian classical music with the warm and intriguing piano stylings of Barnaby Smith.
The tranquility of the Yorkshire Dales in the idyllic setting of the historic village of Follifoot, was most inspirational and led to the existence of this piece. Reflecting our improvisational style, it was initially created through free-style experimentation with Indian classical music notes. The idea of 'Echoes' was created by entwining these musical notes, but occasionally interchanging note names, for phonetic effect. Having then arranged those musical phrases on a laptop in the comfort of our own homes, the piece has finally emerged as our first single.
Watch out for our next single, 'Pia' coming soon!
More about us.....
It was natural progression of a special musical journey that led to Sareni’s existence. Our story began nearly a decade ago when we first met at an Indian classical music school where we all learnt Classical vocals. We were fortunate to have the opportunity to perform and work with many other musicians who shared our interests.
Since then, our passion for music, akin to an unquenchable thirst, has brought us together and we have continued to use our initiative to compose, perform and most of all – have fun.
We love making music. We hope that you enjoy listening and if you have any feedback, good or bad, it’d be most welcome.
Raina, Raj and Hemmy (Sareni)
