The length of the piece is more than two hours. The composer has been studying western classical music as well as Carnatic music and in his composition uses elements of both cultures, bringing them together for the first time and
thus creating a unique sound, full of musicians' craft and spirituality. The music speaks directly to the heart of the audience, regardless of nationality, color or religion. It is made in order to transgress fear and reluctance between
cultures and peoples, thus creating a liberating atmosphere of understanding and love.
The instrumentation for the orchestra is as follows:
2 ob(1engl hn doubled)
3 perc (timp, snare, gran cassa, bells, shaker, tamb, misc.)
The choir must be composed of at least 32 singers separated equally into
Soprano (1 soli)
Tenor (1 soli)
The solo instruments are:

Some of these solo instruments could and should be replaced by instruments local to the performance, according to where the symphony is performed. So for instance, if Sai Symphony should be played in Japan, the flute could be replaced by a shakuhachi, one of the singers could be Japanese and so on.
Indian percussions (3)
Indian plucked instrument
