Listen to Indian classical music

Listen to Indian classical music Image

By Sakshi Agrawal

Start two days this month and in June with the sounds of Indian classical music at the Southbank Dawn Raga Series.

Designed by Arts Centre Melbourne and Multicultural Arts Victoria, two free concerts provide the audience with an opportunity to listen to the spiritual sounds of sitar, flute, veena and the beats of the tabla.

They will feature Melbourne-based Indian musicians, Jay Dabgar, a tabla specialist, Vinod Prassana on Indian flute, bansuri, and Hari Sivanesan on sitar. They will perform alongside internationally-acclaimed Indian musician, Pandit Purbayan Chatterjee, who will be playing the sitar.

The concert, with its uplifting and soothing music, promises to elevate the audiences’s mental state and prepare and energise them for the day ahead.

Jay Dabgar said: “Indian classical music actively demonstrates humanity’s deep emotional connection with nature and our surrounding environment.”

The concerts will be held at 7.30am on May 24 and June 21 at Hamer Hall.
