dian music

Description 

The Indian Music Deep Listening sessions create an imaginary live ambience through various ragas used in Northen and Southern Indian music (Hindustani and Carnatic Music) as well as through Indian soundscapes.

Raagas or Ragams are essentially melodies used in traditional south Asian music for improvisation and composition. Indian soundscapes are compiled by Rajivan Ayyappan from in his field recordings.

The listening sessions last one hour and can be accessed at one’s own pace with silent access in and out of the room. Rajivan will be singing and playing for you, and you can relax, lye down, sit, read, write, draw, move or sleep for as long as you feel good about it 🙂 and then leave… please leave a donation on your way in or out!
