Women’s Raga Massive #METOO and Power in South Asian Performing Arts Communities

In light of a global movement to build safer and more equitable spaces for women in the performing arts, Women’s Raga Massive (WRM) hosts a panel discussion focusing on gender and power in South Asian music communities. The panel, followed by a Long Table discussion are being held in conjunction with WRM’s annual music festival Out of the Woods, honoring women artists, in celebration of Women’s History Month. This year’s iteration of the festival reflects on the subtle and violent, the named and often invisible currents that are at play with the role of gender in music within the South Asian musical world.

The panel will bring together voices of artists, presenters, and leaders in media to discuss gender equality, representation, access to knowledge, power structures, and creating safe spaces for women and other marginalized individuals working in traditional Indian classical communities as well as contemporary music scenes in New York City.

Presented in collaboration with Brooklyn Raga Massive.
