Mission Statement

The performing arts of South Asia are a legacy representing many of the oldest and deepest traditions of our planet. The classical dance,theater and musics in South Asian cultures have a breadth and refinement expressed in many diverse styles. The spiritual wealth, emotional and dramatic richness, rhythmic and melodic vitality, and the abundance of literature embodied in these arts now inspire performers of many disciplines. Representing all ethnic groups, artists of these learned, spiritual and elegantly refined traditions now reside, teach and perform in all parts of the earth. We, at MITHAS family are seeking to enrich our environment and endow our children with the benefits of regular exposure to this great heritage, join together to create a society for the preservation and presentation of these arts to our community and the greater New England area. The complex nature of music makes it nearly impossible to notate and hence exclusively relies on oral transmission as the method of teaching which makes these concerts and lectures vital.
