Neel Murgai, sitar + Brooklyn Raga Massive presented by GatherNYC
Neel Murgai is a sitarist, overtone singer, percussionist, composer, teacher, and Co-Artistic Director of the Brooklyn Raga Massive, a raga inspired musician's collective. Neel's music ranges from Indian classical to original compositions and contemporary cross-cultural collaborations with influences spanning the globe. Hailed as "Leaders of the Raga Renaissance" by the New Yorker and praised by The New York Times for "preserving the past while blurring genres in an inventive spirit," Brooklyn Raga Massive curates and presents over 70 concerts annually at celebrated venues and festivals across the United States and internationally.
Guests at GatherNYC are served exquisite live classical music by New York's most celebrated artists, a taste of the spoken word, and a brief celebration of silence. The entire experience lasts one hour and evokes the community and spiritual nourishment of a religious service - but the religion is music, and all are welcome.
