From Indian classical music to progressive and universal sound orchestrations, become the experience of group singing as we co-create a ‘harmonic sphere’ of mystic rhythm and melody with two soulful musicians.
We are delighted to welcome back to Manly Yoga Shivam Rath and introduce his special international guest, eighth generation Sarangi maestro, Sangeet Mishra. Together they will present a two-hour Raga and Nada Yoga Workshop where participants will learn, in a creative way the fundamental building blocks which create music and language.
Shivam Rath is a World Music Yoga Teacher sharing a universal experience of sound and music based on meditation and the ancient classical system of Indian Raga and Nada Yoga.
He has travelled extensively around India, Asia and the other parts of the world, studying and teaching from his musical experiences for the last eight years. To Shviam, sharing his performance is more than just a form of entertainment, but an uplifting group experience and natural form of meditation.
“By opening through the voice, it systematically opens and connects us back to our heart and allows for clearer communication and confidence in our everyday life.”
Shivam believes the throat is the bridge between the head and heart and through voice and sound alone we can create more harmonious pathways between our entire physical, mental and emotional being.
Shivam teaches musical theory, philosophy and practice in a fun interactive way. Blending this deep music culture and its vast classical structure with a modern-day awareness, weaving it into various styles, such as interactive kirtan chanting or meditative instrumental sound healing.
Attending this Raga and Nada Yoga workshop you will:
- Learn the theory and philosophy of Indian classical music and the esoteric concept of Raga and its ancient origins.
- Discover the intricate language of rhythm (Tala) and melody raga, and how to combine them freely with song or mantra.
- Learn a single raga, how to invoke the feelings, mood, atmosphere and use it to act as a musical channel between the “realm of ragas and cycles of time” in a supported meditative group setting.
- Understand the power of sound, our natural keys, tonal qualities and the natural strengths/weaknesses with our own voice and how we can strengthen through practice.
This session is suitable for absolute beginners, through to kirtan enthusiasts and musical aspirants who may be looking to broaden their horizons and be introduced to the universal language and rhythm of Raga.
Don’t miss this rarely seen musical duo of two exquisitely unique instruments by two soul stirring players, harmonising and resonating together the vast mystic sounds of Indian Raga and its naturally healing musical vibrations.
