The initiating night of Brooklyn Raga Massive’s Ragini Festival 2024 launches with an homage to South Asian traditional strings, both fretted and fretless- the sarod and the sitar.

Titled: Jawari: Raga on Sitar and Sarod, this show takes its name from the soundboard of both instruments, its the tone of “overtone-rich buzzing”, born from the precise tension that the Jawari or “saddle which gives life to the sound” produces.

Both emerging from classical traditions of the Maihar gharana and Etawah gharana, our artists will present traditional ‘raga’ performances, marked by melodic improvisation, systemic melodic patterning, percussive virtuosity— culminating in a synesthetic experience of “that which colors the mind.”
