Journey of the Sun | 7 Ragas | Sitar & Vocal

An unique progression of Classical Ragas performed throughout the day

In the Vedic tradition, the concept of time is intricately woven with the cosmic rhythms and the influences of the celestial bodies. The most influential celestial body is of course the Sun, dictating the time of the day. The choice of raga decided during the day mirrors the natural progression of energies, aligning with the junctures of dawn, morning, midday, afternoon, and sunset. Each raga evokes specific emotions and connects the listener to the universe of sound. As we embark on this day of Raga the sitar and vocal performances will serve as a melodic journey through the different phases of the day.

Each performance starts with a meditation, to tune into the moment of the day. During the breaks between performances Indian meals will be served.
There will be some moments aside of meditation, performance and meals where there will be time to relax, make a walk in the park, or talk with the performers, and ask in more depth about Indian Classical Music or Raga in specific.

Underneath you will find a time-table; We will hold to the timings though in this table, different Ragas are suggested. A traditional Musician will feel into the atmosphere of the moment including the audience, to choose the most suitable raag. Therefore we can not promise underneath raags will be performed. The performed choices will be a surprise of the moment. We do promise a rich and attuned unfolding will take place!
