The holiday signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, and an opportunity to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive. Bandleader and dhol player Sunny Jain curates a night of music highlighting the South Asian Diaspora in America...special guests and openers for 2018's Festival of Colors will be announced soon!

    Women's Raga Massive

    Music

    Women’s Raga Massive (WRM), a Brooklyn Raga Massive project, explores and makes visible the diverse creative work of female-identified artists in a world where those voices are a minority. WRM uses Indian Classical music as a framework to improvise and collaborate while bringing in influences from the diverse cultures of Brooklyn. They seek to create an inclusive platform for individual artists and female-led ensembles to engage in musical conversations highlighting original works, gender issues, cross-cultural dialogue, and achievements of women from the past, whose stories are often untold. WRM hopes to inspire and empower young women of all backgrounds to freely express themselves as creative artists in contemporary America.
