    Ragas Live is an epic 24-hour, 24-set festival featuring over 70 world-class musicians. A celebration of what The New York Times calls “the Raga Renaissance, flowering in Brooklyn,” the event is rooted in the unique time cycle of Indian Classical Music in which specific musical modes are performed at specific times of day. The diverse musical offerings flow between traditional presentations and cross-cultural, genre-blurring collaborations with jazz legends, African virtuosos, minimalist composers, dance troupes, and beyond. Now in its 8th year, a global audience shares the experience via a 24-hour broadcast on WKCR 89.9 FM, while the harmonizing, immersive experience can be enjoyed under the stars and through the sunrise at Pioneer Works.
