Brooklyn Raga Massive (BRM) is an artist collective dedicated to creating cross-cultural understanding through the lens of Indian classical and Raga inspired music. It is comprised of forward thinking musicians rooted in both traditional Indian and South Asian classical music, as well as cross-cultural Raga inspired music. Hailed as “Leaders of the Raga Renaissance” by the New Yorker, BRM creates original composed music by BRM member musicians and represented ensembles, presents over 7o concerts annually with an ongoing weekly concert and raga jam session series and specialty concerts, and co-presents an annual 24 Ragas Live festival. In particular, the culturally inclusive nature of BRM has not only built a strong community, but has become an incubator of new music collaborations with sounds indigenous to Brooklyn.
