Nada Bharathi was started in 2000 by a renowned mridangist, Yuva Sangeeta Bharathi Paravastu Srinivas Gopalan, who hails from a family of classical musicians. The basic objective of the organisation is to preserve, promote and propagate all forms of classical music, by increasing awareness through regular concerts.
Since its inception, it has conducted more than 500 concerts, concentrating not only on Carnatic music but also on Hindustani. The organisation has held musical concerts of renowned vocalists, violinists, mridangists, flautists and vainikas.
