Red Poppy Art House: Brooklyn Raga Massive: A Night of Terry Riley & Raga-Inspired Music
July 20, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Brooklyn Raga Massive draws inspiration from Terry Riley, himself a practitioner of Indian classical music for some years, beginning with their performance and recording of Riley’s seminal composition “In C.” For this evening, BRM presents Indian classical music, original works inspired by the master, and a sneak peak at a new work in progress composed by Riley exclusively for BRM.
