World Music Festival - Ragamala: A Celebration of Indian Classical Music
World Music Festival > Ragamala
For the 3rd year, spanning 12 hours and featuring dozens of performers, Ragamala offers a jaw-dropping assortment of Indian classical music from some of its greatest and emerging practitioners. Ragamala functions as the perfect, immersive introduction to the classical music of India. Not only are both the music of the north (Hindustani) and the south (Carnatic) represented, but listeners will also get the rare chance to hear ragas performed at the time of day they were originally composed for—a facet of the tradition lost in the west.
