This month's program in the Museum's Patti Cadby Birch Court will feature an evening of ragas from the North Indian classical tradition, performed by sitarist Neel Murgai and tabla master Shivalik Ghoshal. Murgai hails from the Maihar gharana (school) as taught by his guru, Pundit Krishna Bhatt, in the lineage of Pundit Ravi Shankar. Ghoshal represents the Lucknow gharana and his guru, Pundit Swapan Chaudhuri. Both performers are members of the Brooklyn Raga Massive—a collective of forward-thinking Indian classical musicians who perform weekly in Brooklyn.

The Moroccan Court Music Series is made possible by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art and The Persepolis Foundation.
