From the meditative to the ecstatic, raga presentation has always been about bringing out the mood of the raga to color the minds of the listeners. This night we have artists representing the global widespread of Hindusthani music performing in a very traditional style on the most iconic of instruments -the sitar and tabla.
In Sanskrit, the word "RAGA" translates to "THAT WHICH COLORS THE MIND". With this inspiration, BRM presents our premier gala, the "RAGALA!" Mingle with your favorite BRM musicians, patrons of the arts, actors, writers, artists, friends, and our music gurus. Connect with others like you, passionate about the music Brooklyn Raga Massive creates. This community will keep classical and contemporary music rooted in Indian traditions alive and well. Together, we are building a strong cultural platform for years to come. Join us in celebrating this growing movement and musical revolution!
Brian (Shankar) Adler builds surreal musical landscapes and structures out of textless mantras, disintegrating drones, and mind-bending polyrhythms. At this performance, the ensemble will celebrate the release of their new album: Fourth Dimension.
