BRM Jam Session

The seeds of Brooklyn Raga Massive were first planted during a jam session at Branded Saloon in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn in 2012. What began as a casual, weekly event flourished and grew into a mainstay of the New York City arts scene, cultivating a vibrant community of diverse musicians and music lovers. The democratic nature of the jam sessions is our way of making engagement with raga music more welcoming and accessible to artists of all backgrounds and experience levels. Grounded in raga music, the jam sessions always surprise and delight with stunning classical performances as well as improvisatory explorations into any and all genres of music. 

BRM Jam Sessions take place monthly and kick off with an hour long concert followed by a jam session. 

Musicians who wish to join us can register their details here, and they'll have the privilege of attending the concert without any charge. Each Jam session will be guided by one of our BRM musicians, who will establish an initial order to kickstart the sessions.

BRM Jam Session is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.

There are precious few opportunities to enjoy a frosty beverage while slipping into the transcendental time warp of a classical Indian raga — which makes the Brooklyn Raga Massive’s peripatetic Wednesday night events kind of like the Alamo Drafthouse of Indian classical music. Attracting an audience as stylishly diverse as its music, BRM offers a just-say-yes approach to collaboration that has brought together Moroccan, West African, electronic, jazz, and hip-hop musicians under its inclusive umbrella.”
