July 2, 2016 @ 10:00 am - July 3, 2016 @ 3:00 pm

Sri Mridanga’s origins extend more than 5,000 years into Vedic antiquity. This sacred clay drum is the grandsire of the modern tabla, pakavaj, mridangam, dolak and others. 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 Sampradaya is now being taught systematically in the west for the first time.
