Naad yogi āshīsh dhā has spent years in India training in Hindustani raag music, and has also studied Sanskrit, Indian culture, mythology and Hindu philosophy. Temporarily in Mexico City, he teaches Indian languages, music, and meditation online. He has given lecture-demonstrations and workshops in three continents on the fundamentals of naad yog, including Sanskrit phonetics, mantra pronunciation, sacred chanting, Hindustani raag music, and the physics of sound. His unique combination of his spiritual practice with his musical training has led to the development of musical meditation: Universe- and Self-guided free flow of energetically aware music. He is deeply into his spiritual practice, and is delighted to be sharing its power and delight.
āshīsh dhā is also a performer-composer, raagdaaree musician, sound designer and spoken-word artist. He has given many concerts of his original experimental music, ‘Hindustani 2.0’. 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 southern France. Earlier, he performed and gave workshops extensively in India, including the ‘Indian Music Intonation Workshop’ at IHC, New Delhi. His formal musical training has been in Hindustani classical singing: in khayaal from a young age, and for the past 6 years in dhrupad fundamentals from Wasifuddin Dagar. 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.
