the story of...

Raag-Mala Toronto

Raag-Mala Toronto’s mission is to weave the thread of Indian Classical Music (ICM) into the Canadian cultural fabric. We were formed in 1981 with a mandate to promote and preserve ICM by presenting top Indian and North America-based artists in performance. Our secondary objective is to spread the awareness and appreciation of ICM through lecture-demonstrations and a strong online presence.

Today, we are amongst the longest-serving organizations in North America that are focused on this genre, celebrating our 42nd year of uninterrupted programming in 2022.

Raag-Mala Toronto operates with a 10-person board and 20 other dedicated volunteers.

A  passionate and constantly energized leadership team has added long term stability since our inception in 1981. We are able to program well in advance for each season with limited financial means thanks to considerable support from volunteers, donations from individuals and funding from the Ontario Arts Council.
