Kalapana is a music group that has earned a special place in the hearts of many, especially those who grew up listening to them. Malani's composition “Naturally” from the band's first album is particularly beloved, as it brings back fond memories of childhood for many. I remember the first time I heard Lowen and Navarro's songs, sent to me by a friend from college on a mixed tape. Songs like “Walking on a Wire” and “The Spell You're Under” were unlike anything I had heard before, and reminded me of another duo I grew up listening to in Hawaii, C&K.
After some searching, I found their debut album and listened to it over and over again. Listening to music can have many advantages, from improving your mood during the morning commute to work to helping you feel more relaxed throughout the day. It can also help you more quickly complete mundane and repetitive tasks on your to-do list. SaPa created SaPa in Schools so that all children could benefit from music, including Carnatic music with live classes in SaPa of Carnatic voice, Carnatic violin, flute, mridangam and konnakol with music educators who are also artists.
Even if you don't play an instrument, you can still take advantage of music by listening to it recreationally or through music therapy. Studies have shown that Carnatic music in particular has many health benefits, making it a hobby and profession worth exploring. Listening to Kalapana music can be an incredibly rewarding experience. Not only does it bring back fond memories of childhood, but it also has numerous health benefits that make it worth pursuing as a hobby or profession.
Whether you're listening to their debut album or taking part in SaPa in Schools classes, Kalapana music is sure to bring joy into your life.
