Ethnomusicology in the Garden: Hindustani Classical Music

May 12, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Ethnomusicology in the Garden: Hindustani Classical Music

Join us at the golden hour in the garden for a concert of Hindustani (Northern Indian) classical music featuring sitar and tabla. This music takes form through a concept called raag, which contains mood, composition and improvisation, and flows through multiple movements which build up to climactic closing sections. The selected raags are Charukeshi and Yaman, which are both traditionally played or listened to in the evening. These will be performed outside in the waning hours of the day, with the hope of connecting the sonic performance with the moods of the garden at a day’s end.

Music is performed by UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music Department of Ethnomusicology students Justin Inbar on sitar and Ram Kaundinya on tabla.

This event is free, but seating is limited. Please RSVP here.

The UCLA Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden acknowledges the Gabrielino/Tongva peoples as the traditional land caretakers of Tovaangar (the Los Angeles basin and So. Channel Islands). As a promoter of nature at a California land grant institution, we pay our respects to the Honuukvetam (Ancestors), ‘Ahiihirom (Elders) and ‘Eyoohiinkem (our relatives/relations) past, present and emerging.
