Swara is a soothing Indian Fusion project. Noel Scerri and Anthony Curmi both state that they are musically inseparable. With this solid bond as a backbone to any of their interesting projects, and after having formed the critically much well acclaimed Indian Fusion band Cushion, Noel and Anthony wanted to return to their roots.
Swara is a modern approach, a new perspective, to the ancient enchanting sounds of Indian music. Using only Sitar and Keys, which actually are two opposites when comparing the ultra modern technology that Noel is using in this project, opposed to the ancient bare and enchanting sound of the sacred Indian Sitar that Anthony lays over the carpet of sublime ambience, creates a truly magical and unique sound, Swara.
Noel and Anthony are studying Indian Classical music together, using a method that even in itself is innovative, and to this knowledge base, they are adding modern ideas with no boundaries to create their own unique sound. Swara is an experience in itself, and the wall of sound created by Swara is quite impressive when considering that all the music one receives is coming just from two musicians. Noel and Anthony are also humble in approach, and they state that even if they touch just one single spirit during their performance night, they are satisfied. Thing is, it happens that with their beautiful music, good for young and old and basically for all open minds, they are surely doing more than just that. With their increasing appearances, a few recordings also in mind, and a growing fan base, Swara seems to be more than just a duo, and surely a special one.

Odessa is the third most populous city of Ukraine and a major tourism center, seaport and transportation hub located on the northwestern shore of the Black Sea. In July 2018, Roman Petruk is holding his exhibition of paintings Shores of Love in Odessa.
Roman Petruk was born on October 14th, 1991 in Lutsk, Ukraine. He graduated from the Lutsk Art School. Since 2008 he studied at the National Academy of Visual Arts and Architecture (NAOMA) in Kyiv, Ukraine. In 2015 he graduated with Honors from the Workshop of Painting and Temple Culture named after Mykola Storozhenko at NAOMA. Then he entered to the post-graduate study in Academy. Roman is a member of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine. He works in the field of painting, graphic art, monumental and sacred art. He is a participant of more than 50 national, international and personal exhibitions and plenaries.
Roman Petruk is a master of deep psychological artistic transmission of the human character in paints. Innovation of the artist is a masterful combination of the classical school of drawing and painting with the expressive symbolic manner of images visualization, which in the artist`s works acquires either secretly-mysterious features, or emotionally explosive force. According to the master, each of his portraits has its own performance technique. There`s someone he writes smoothly, in some places he has to scratch, sometimes he puts over ten layers of paints. He does it all in order to express the psychology of the person depicted on the portrait and to show the sound of his/her soul. The works of the artist are stored in the funds of NAOMA, in a private and museum collections of Europe.
