'Raag Sense' Study Group with Ali Sethi
What is a raga? In this study group we learn to recognise, differentiate and perform the “melodic frameworks” of precolonial India. Students engage with various schemes of Indian musicology. This group is formatted like a traditional ‘baithak’ or salon.

Meeting dates are 10/16, 10/23, & 10/30 from 3pm-5pm. This study group is limited to 25 students. Register here.
