The Drum Theatre is presenting this outdoor event – Dawn Raga in Harmony Square.
As we begin a fresh new year full of possibilities, you are invited to awaken your senses through the sounds of Indian classical music. Be immersed in the meditative and spiritual sounds of the sitar, flute, veena and voice with the uplifting beats of the tabla. The Dawn Raga concerts have been curated by renowned artists Jay Dabgar (tabla) and Hari Sivanesan (veena) and will feature some of the best exponents of this form of classical music.
A Raga, in Indian classical music, is the melodic framework for improvisation and composition. It is based on a scale with a given set of notes, a typical order in which they appear in melodies, and characteristic musical motifs. By using only these notes, by emphasizing certain degrees of the scale, and by going from note to note, the performer sets out to create a mood or atmosphere.
We will be serving complementary cups of chai on the day. You may wish to bring a cushion, mat, or stool to sit on.
