From our friends at National Sawdust
Violinists Trina Basu and Arun Ramamurthy bring their transformative debut album "Nakshatra" to National Sawdust in this lush, spiritual album release concert, featuring a timeless musical language of South Indian classical music, Western chamber music, and jazz. A Sanskrit word evocative of constellations, stars, and interconnectedness, Nakshatra perfectly encapsulates the album’s expansive sound, which quite surprisingly, is made by just two violins vibrating together in sublime harmony. Profoundly intimate yet bearing a cinematic gravitas, this work five years in the making conveys a feeling of two souls in conversation spanning hundreds of years into the past and the future.
