Color your mind at Ragas Live Festival, a 24-hour celebration of Indian classical music. Experience the innovations of New York City’s current “raga renaissance” as over fifty master musicians—and an enthusiastic audience—take over the Museum for an overnight concert of sacred sounds.
Ragas, with roots in the vedas, are designed to be played at specific times of day: as the earth rotates, the music harmonizes with changes in light and mood, potentially transforming the listener’s consciousness. At Ragas Live Festival, you’ll hear evening ragas as night falls and witness the sunrise to a composition devoted to the early morning. Throughout the experience you can enjoy this timeless music as you peruse the Rubin Museum’s collection of Himalayan art and exhibitions such as The World Is Sound.
