Description of the workshop
Raagas or Ragams are essentially a tonal frame-work used in traditional south Asian music for improvisation and composition. The workshop will introduce and explore two dominant raga systems used in Northen and Southern Indian music (Hindustani music and Carnatic Music).
There will be 6 sessions of 90 min each that include lectures, demonstrations and practicing sessions designed to offer the fundamental principles and techniques around such tonal frame works for professional/practicing musicians to understand the fundamental principles for further exploration and experimentation. The teachings are mainly from a vocal perspective and conveyable to any melodic instrument.
This workshop is recognised by the Ministry of culture as professional development training for the teachers of the conservatoires and music schools of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
