District of Raga, previously known as DC Raga Jam, was launched in January 2017 with a vision of creating a space for practitioners and lovers of Indian classical music to gather for musical dialogue and community within Washington, D.C. Their inspiration came from the hugely successful community of musicians in New York City known as Brooklyn Raga Massive.

The event is currently held at Bossa Bistro & Lounge in Adams Morgan on the last Wednesday of every month. The event showcases a curated, featured artist followed by an open jam session with a focus on representing traditional and authentic Indian classical music as well as multicultural musical traditions. District of Raga is curated, hosted, and organized by cofounders Nistha Raj and Avi Shah.
