Back    Contact: T. Gibbs -

This dynamic ensemble fuses ancient works from the south Asian continent of India with modern western rhythm instruments. The compositions are based on the "raga" system of music in which an ascending and descending scale is performed and developed with increasing complexity and tempo acceleration. Featured instruments are tabla - a set of two tuned drums, one bass and a tenor; mridrangam - the tuned south India drum from which the tabla evolved; the western vibes; electric bass; and western drum-kit
