Meets Saturday and Sunday from 10 am – 3pm with a break for lunch.
Sri Mridanga’s origins extend more than 5,000 years into Vedic antiquity. Primarily employed as an instrument of kirtan and other sacred ritual, its system is a musical expression of the comprehensive philosophy and yogic mysticism of bhakti, the essential Vedic teaching. An obscured art, this tradition of Manoharshaya is now being taught systematically in the West for the first time.
Students will gain a comprehensive understanding of mridanga’s historical and theoretical background, as well as proficiency in counting and playing fixed and improvisational compositions in tala for training or performance. Those who demonstrate a command of the material of this level of instruction can earn the title “Prabhakara”.
Students will need a mridanga for the workshop. Order Yours Here
