Art, science, philosophy, and spirituality intersect in the ancient form of Indian Raga. Join Alexandre Tannous, sound researcher, sound therapist and ethnomusicologist in an intimate and spontaneous conversation about the effects of this unique system of sound, consciousness, and spirituality. In a wide ranging, interactive discussion, we'll follow our ideas wherever they lead us.
