Raga Academy of Indian Music

Nita Thoreson, a native of Davis has been a long time student of Raga Academy of Indian Music based in Elk Grove. Raga Academy has been preserving the cultural heritage of India for more than two decades. Nit will present two devotional songs from Music of India tradition. The first song is dedicated to Lord Ganesh who is the remover of obstacles & bestower of prosperity. We are praying for the safety & well-being of all in this COVID-19 pandemic times. The second song was a favorite of Mahatma Gandhi. It says that those are the people of God who feel the pain of others, help those in misery without letting ego or conceit enter their minds.
