"We always thought to work on something which will have a social impact so, fortunately our mind could think broadly to form an organisation which could stand for NON PROFIT ACTS for arts, artistes and performers of any genres. And we with two amazing young enthusiasts and personalities of same wavelengths Anirban Bhattacharyya and Anirban Adhikary, found SUR that stands for Sublime Urge to Rejoice" .......Says the Duo.
SUR started its journey in the year 2014 with the four innovative minds and has been successfully working for arts and artistes. SUR also joined hand with other non profit organizations for uplift of young kids from red light areas by educating them with the age old tradition of music. In the year 2014 with the blessings of Padma Vibhushan Girija Devi ji SUR started the grand SUR Festival featuring artistes of 4 generations on the same platform. SUR Festival got named as GIRIJA DEVI SUR FESTIVAL while she was present but unfortunately with her sudden demise that had to be postponed and done later.
SUR in its online series during the pandemic, has been featuring artistes from not only Classical but other traditional forms too.
