Goswami & Ramu
Our musical guests are two of North India’s most revered classical musicians, who weave musical motifs into melodic tapestries called “Ragas”. In the Indian tradition, ragas are experienced as guided meditations that can “color the mind” and affect the emotions of the audience, reflecting specific moods, seasons and times.
Don’t miss this rare and intimate performance with masters Ramu Pandit (tablas) and Rabindra Goswami (sitar), and then join them at the table for a feast afterwards.
Yoga With Arden Sundari Pierce
Unwind with an hour of gentle poses and breath work to relax the body, reduce mental chatter, and heighten the senses in preparation for the evening’s ragas. Please bring mat if you have one; props will be provided. All abilities are welcome.
Arden has been a Yoga Therapist and teacher for over twenty-five years and is a co-owner of Sun Studio in Florence.
Masala Chai & Gajar ka Halwa
Sip and savor a traditional cup of Masala chai, made with black tea – hand carried from Sri Lanka – simmered with locally grown organic ginger, and warming spices. The chai will be served with gajar ka halwa, a traditional North Indian pudding made of local, organic carrots gently simmered in milk, sugar, and cardamom. Don’t let its humble ingredients fool you. This delicately spiced sweet snack will awaken your tastebuds in advance of the evening meal.
