Ragas Live Festival

October 14 @ 8:00 pm - October 15 @ 8:00 pm EDT


From October 14-15, Ragas Live Festival will present 24 continuous hours of transcendent, spiritual music at the Pioneer Works main stage, and in a brilliantly produced livestream.

19 Performances will include masters of the raga tradition such as Ramakrishnan Murthy and The Akkarai Sisters, alongside legendary figures in ambient music, minimalism and new music including Vicky Chow, David Cossin & Mark Stewart of the Bang on a Can All-Stars, and Mind Maintenance from the influential duo of Joshua Abrahms and Chad Taylor.

Reflecting ragas influence on jazz, Celebrating John McLaughlin & Mahavishnu will feature Premik Russell Tubbs on woodwinds, an original member of the Mahavishnu Orchestra. Breaking ground within the tradition will be a jugalbandi, or duet, of Kunal Gunjal & Suhail Yusuf Khan Kunal on santoor and sarangi, two traditional classical raga instruments that have never been performed together in the United States. To sarangi maestro Suahail Yusuf Khan’s knowledge, the last time these instruments performed together was in India featuring his legendary grandfather Ustad Sabri Khan.
