Brooklyn Raga Massive (BRM), the raga-inspired musicians’ collective, will present its interpretation of “In C,” the iconic minimalist composition of Terry Riley. Even though Riley himself studied North Indian vocal music with Pandit Pran Nath, BRM is the first group to perform the piece with mostly Indian classical instruments. BRM’s psychedelic interpretation utilizes driving tabla rhythms, raga embellishments, and improvisation along with sitar, sarod, bansuri, violin, vocals, guitar, cello, dulcimer, and more. Last October BRM released its CD Terry Riley In C on Northern Spy Records, with a music video launched on NPR Music.
