Soundbath with Doyal Gauranga + Anuj Sharma

Spiral Music

Wednesday, August 30, 2017
6:00 PM–9:00 PM

Spiral Music presents acoustic music every Wednesday evening at the base of the museum’s spiral staircase. Artists who specialize in music from the Himalayas and South Asia are invited to forge a connection between their music and the art in the galleries. Inspired by The World Is Sound, Spiral Music will present a series of informal, seated soundbaths.
