Musicians in any genre, working at any level from amateur to professional, are invited to join this welcoming community where we’ll learn by doing.
Join in with your voice or your instrument (and feel free to mute your own singing/playing) as Michael Harrison shares the Kirana lineage of Khayal singing he learned from his Gurus Pandit Pran Nath, Ustad Mashkoor Ali Khan, Terry Riley and La Monte Young.
Together, we’ll experience the basics of raga, from structural principles to the building blocks of basic rhythmic cycles, improvisation, and ways of combining raga with Western musical approaches. Sasha Bogdanowitsch and Elliot Cole will also teach weekly practice sessions to assist everyone in learning and practicing.
Come explore the beauty and the techniques of raga in this nurturing environment, and learn how these rich traditions can illuminate your own musical voice.
