5 stars - Raga are Highly Recommended
booked Raga for their event May 2021

“Ricky has been a highly inspiring and popular associate lecturer in the University of Plymouth Music department for a number of years. His inputs for us centre around workshop/recitals in classical Indian music and his great gift is to establish a bridge between students of the western culture and the Indian tradition. An artist of great integrity, this shines through in both his performances and his careful individual dealings with students. Special elements of note which feature in his sessions range from establishing an understanding of the architecture of the raga through to the transcendental and dynamic qualities fundamental to the performance of this music. Ricky is sensitive to the leanings of the contemporary music student and also understands the requirements of the university system, having directed sizeable elements of taught modules, individually and with a tabla player. He is 100% reliable and we always look forward to his various inputs.”
