In this weekend intensive workshop students will broaden their
understanding and awareness of the elements of North Indian classical
music, raga & tala, by participating in five 2½-hour classes scheduled
throughout the weekend to take advantage of the raga cycle – the
relationship between raga and the time of day. Students will sing ragas
associated with the different times of day, from morning until night.
The class will be accompanied by tambura, the essential drone
instrument, and tabla, a set of two small hand drums used in North
Indian classical music.
For students who have already had some study with the instructor, or
with instructor’s consent.
