Ron Ragin, ’05

Ron Ragin writes, sings, composes, and makes interdisciplinary performance work that integrates sound, text, and movement.  His creative interests include music of the African Diaspora, embodied ancestral memory, improvisational creative processes, liberation aesthetics, and the development and maintenance of spiritual technologies. Ragin grew up in Perry, Georgia and received my earliest musical training at the Saint James Christian Methodist Episcopal Church. He’s had the honor of performing with brilliant souls like Amara Tabor-Smith and Grisha Coleman, studying my crafts with luminaries such as Joy Harjo and Brenda Wong Aoki, and being a soloist on Christopher Tin’s Grammy Award-winning album Calling All Dawns.
