Together, we'll experience the basics of raga, from structural principles to the building blocks of basic rhythmic cycles, improvisation, and ways of combining raga with Western musical approaches. Elizabeth LatifaNoor Anderson will also teach weekly practice sessions to assist everyone in learning and practicing. Come explore the beauty and the techniques of raga in this nurturing environment, and learn how these rich traditions can illuminate your own musical voice.
