The Annual Ragas Live Marathon Goes Virtual - and International!

The Ragas Live Festival is a 24-hour music marathon. Indian Classical Music is its heart but there's much more. Going virtual this year (starting 7 pm Sat Nov 21), the festival will feature great artists based abroad as well as in the US. David Ellenbogen guest-DJs to share archival festival recordings, and preview this year's festival, including Brooklyn Raga Massive's Terry Riley tribute In D - which will also be released as an album.
