About the Musicians

Trina Basu and Arun Ramamurthy join forces to create a musical dialogue between improvising string traditions. Well-versed in the rhythmic and melodic concepts of South Indian classical music and the harmonic language of Western classical, jazz, and folk music, the duo presents original compositions that explore the beauty found at the intersections of their creative backgrounds. The intuitive nature of two violinists allows for moments of unbridled spontaneity and intimate connection. Their sound has been described as raga meets fiddle meets experimental.
