Event Description:

Luminous Ragas: A Concert of Indian Classical Music
with guest performers 
Steve Gorn - Bansuri Flute
Dibyarka Chatterjee - Tabla

The musicians will perform ragas from the Hindustani classical music tradition as well as folk melodies from North India.  This music is passed from generation to generation, from master to disciple, as a living oral tradition. It combines the classicism of traditional repertoire, fixed melodic forms, and precise intonation, with improvisation and spontaneous creation.   Indian classical music is a meeting of Raga (melody) and Tala  (rhythm).  Raga means, “to color the mind,” and traditionally, each raga, or melodic landscape, is associated with a time of day, a season or a quality of light.  Tala, is rhythm…time, defined and elaborated in rhythmic cycles. Evolved over centuries from music performed in temples and courts, present day Indian classical music is a true  "chamber music."
