Southbank Dawn Raga Series
Time Out says
Start your day with blissful Indian music at this free monthly event
Start your day with a relaxed mind at the Southbank Dawn Raga Series, a free Arts Centre Melbourne event happening from April 26 to June 21. It’s a monthly event where you can enjoy a range of classical Indian music, from the meditative sounds of the sitar to the exciting beats of the tabla – a traditional Indian percussion instrument that is sure to lift your spirits for the day.
Three Melbourne-based musicians are lined-up to attend the series: Jay Dabgar (tabla), Vinod Prassana (bansuri) and Hari Sivanesan (sitar). They will be joined by international sitar star Pandit Purbayan Chatterjee.
This is your opportunity to get more in touch with your spiritual side and head into work with a sense of calm. There are three dates available. On April 26 the event will be held at the Arts Centre Melbourne, while on May 24 and June 21 you'll find it at Hamer Hall (in the St Kilda Road foyer). All events start at 7.30 am and don’t forget to bring your mats or towels to fully enjoy the experience.
The Southbank Dawn Raga Series is free to attend but bookings are essential.
