Brooklyn Raga Massive Presents: A performance workshop on the Classical Music of India

Friday February 5, 2016 @ 7:00 pm


Leading practitioners of Indian Classical Music (ICM) in the U.S., Arun Ramamurthy (violin) & Jay Gandhi (bansuri) will explore through an interactive performance the similarities and differences of the two distinct forms of Indian classical music that have developed in its history: Hindustani, from the North and Carnatic, from the South.

Joined by respected percussionists, Ehren Hanson (tabla) and A.R. Balaskandan (mridangam), the team will also discuss the concepts and applications of Raga and Tala, the two essential elements of the music.

This performance workshop is presented by Brooklyn Raga Massive, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and innovation of Indian Classical music. Brooklyn Raga Massive are currently artists-in-residence at the Pioneer Works in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

The concert will be streamed live at BKCM.ORG/LIVE

Tickets are non-refundable.
