Sruthi;
The Beginning


Sruthi was formed in 2005 by a small group of friends living in the UK and originating from Kerala, India, who were united by passion and fondness towards the art, literature and culture of Kerala.

Sruthi was formed with the intention to maintain this passion, to explore ways of nourishing it through interaction with artists and literary figures from Kerala, to identify and develop artistic talents, and to stage existing and new talent at appropriate venues. Sruthi was formally inaugurated on 1st October 2005 by Padma Vibhushan Prof. Late O. N. V. Kurup, the internationally acclaimed Malayalam poet.

Sruthi;Now


Having been in existence since 2005, Sruthi now has more than eighty member families, who come from all over U.K. Sruthi has grown into a major art and cultural forum and is well known both in the U.K and in Kerala.

Sruthi's annual events have grown in quality and popularity through the years and these are keenly attended by lovers of art and culture from different ethnic groups. Sruthi members spend several weekends rehearsing various cultural events including dance, music and drama, before presenting them to a packed audience at the Annual Day function. Many of them have to travel long distances to rehearsal venues in different parts of the UK and spend their time and resources with the single aim of delivering a high-quality programme.

The Annual General Body meeting gives opportunities for our budding talents to perform and demonstrate their talents, receiving encouragement and mentorship from the senior members. Sruthi publishes the annual magazine Sruthirekha, with themed editions every year – a feast for readers.

Recently Sruthi has taken steps to widen its activity base by creating “Sukrithi” which is a group of people interested in Malayalam literature.
