About the music

In India, music pervades the entire life of man. Traditionally, ploughmen and boatmen have celebrated the rhythms in nature as they added harmony to their labor. Since the Vedic chants of 1,500 B.C., this tradition has been refined as it was handed down, and crystallized into a system of Ragas and Rhythms. The raga is a melody mould, with a distinct mood, characterizing seasons, hours of the day and archetypes human and divine. Indian rhythm is cyclical: it is based in repetition, but each repetition is varied ingeniously. The duo employs these elements to improvise in a complex interplay.

Performances: The Smithsonian, The Kennedy Center, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Essouira, Morocco Music Festival, Stockholm, Berlin and many more
