Africa meets India at Brooklyn Raga Massive

  • Art Cafe, Brooklyn 884 Pacific St Brooklyn, NY, 11238 United States (map)


Afrika meets India is an innovative convergence of classical Indian raga melody, traditional Zimbabwean mbira song, and a grooving blend of Indian and African rhythm. 

Formed in 2014, this young band has performed at the NYC Drive East Festival, WKCR Ragas Live Festival and more.

With Afrika Meets India, centuries of celebrated musical traditions dance together - and perhaps return to their common origins - as the ragas of India find common ground with African chants, rhythms and melodies.

Grounded by tradition but guided by the spirit of spontaneous improvisation no two Afrika Meets India concerts are alike.
