BAC Ragas Live Festival is "24 hours of uninterrupted, absolutely incredible music performances" (The New York Times) . Over 50 master musicians from around the globe contribute to the experience at Pioneer Works, in Red Hook, Brooklyn, while an international audience shares the moments via a live broadcast on WKCR-FM NY. The event's format of 24 hours of continuous music is inspired by Raga, S. Asia's classical music, which is unique in that specific modes are only played at specific times of the day. Now in it's 13th year, the event has become a major part of the cultural fabric of Brooklyn and experience not to be missed: "This is the festival in the world I look forward to most every year."
