Description:
Violinists Arun Ramamurthy and Trina Basu join forces with mrudangist Rajna Swaminathan and bassist Michael Gam to create music that stretches across continents, bringing a new perspective to time-honored traditions. Drawing from Carnatic and Western classical music, jazz and contemporary improvisation, the ensemble explores the beauty and sound found at the intersection of their musical paths. The intuitive nature of two violinists allows for moments of unbridled spontaneity and intimate connection. Their sound has been described as raga-infused, gritty and graceful, folky and experimental. 

"....intricate, cinematic, constantly shifting series of themes anchored in thousands of years of Indian classical music." - New York Music DailyEnsemble:
