Thanks for thinking of supporting my art practice! I perform and teach Hindustaanee raag music, and I also design software to make raag music and pure shrutis (Just Intonation microtones) accessible to everyone! If you've ever enjoyed my performances, videos, digital instruments, lessons, workshops or any other work, please do chip in whatever you feel you can afford, so I can keep making awesome art for you 😁 🙏🏼
Here's a little more about me...
ASHISH DHA is a performer-composer, raagdaaree musician, sound designer and spoken-word artiste. His specialty is cross-genre experimental music, often based on Hindustani raags, but drawing on influences ranging from Aerosmith and Avril Lavigne to AR Rehman and Wasifuddin Dagar. His latest passion is 'musical meditation' - meditative, through-composed pieces on hammered dulcimer, piano, voice and baansuree. He also plays with his new ensemble, 'Ashish Dha & Friends' - an international musical collaboration, with whom he has performed live and on radio.
Ashish has given many concerts of his original experimental music, 'Hindustani 2.0', as well as lecture-demonstrations and workshops, in music, sound, spoken word and acoustics. Performances in Europe include the recent 'India Day' celebrations in Dublin, and 'Ashish Dha en Marseille' - a two-week mini festival of Hindustani raag music and naad yog in France. Earlier, he performed and gave workshops extensively in India, including the 'Indian Music Intonation Workshop' at IHC, New Delhi. His formal training has been in Hindustani classical singing, both khayaal and dhrupad fundamentals. After freelancing in India for some years and getting an MFA degree in Sound Design from CalArts, USA, he is now based in Delhi and Dublin, Ireland, where he seeks creative collaborations and students through his sound studio cum music learning and performance center, Naadaalay.
