Covid-19 Announcement

Due to the current Coronovirus Covid-19 pandemic, Manasamitra has postponed all performances for the Dewsbury ‘Not-The-Fringe’ Festival at Dewsbury Minster until further notice. Performances of The Sound of Tea have been re-scheduled to June 2021 and we are planning an online version, to be filmed once current restrictions are lifted. The South Asian Female Composers Call-Out is still going ahead.  We have re-worked the project to be delivered remotely and are still seeking suitable applications.  Please contact for more information.

Call-Out For Emerging South Asian Female Composers

Are you a South Asian female composer interested and/or working in cross-cultural or fusion music? If so this may be the ideal opportunity for you.

Manasamitra is offering a unique mentoring opportunity to three young women living and working in the North of England who are at an early stage of their music careers and who are interested in developing their composition abilities within a cross-genre environment. You will need to be interested in working with other music forms to create something genuinely new and original. Artistic Director / Composer Supriya Nagarajan will work with the successful mentees in both group and one-to-one situations to develop new works for public presentation.

All reasonable expenses covered.

For details and further information: contact Jacqueline Greaves on
Deadline 31st March 2020

This opportunity is supported by the Performing Rights Society Fund and by Arts Council England ‘Developing Your Creative Potential’ funding strand.
