About RAGA

RAGA took shape on Makarasankranti, 2006 as an informal group of people whose primary aim is to appreciate, enjoy and promote one of the Classical Music of India.

RAGA kicked off the second decade of its service to the community with the successful Sampradaya Competition with sole focus to encourage and recognize classical music talent among children. This year, in 2017 the event was held on Sunday, April 01, 2017 at the Auditorium of Keigwin Middle School, Middletown, CT. Event pictures are posted on the Facebook page.
