This three-piece world music ensemble based in Germany seamlessly weave the guitar, double violin and both North & South Indian percussion. Their music is a captivating fusion, masterfully blending traditional Indian Carnatic music with elements of western classical music and jazz.
Formed in 1999, the group tours as a quartet, with Matthias on guitar, Radhakrishna on the rare and unique, stereophonic double violin, and percussionists Udai and Yoga, from North and South India, respectively.
In their fiery compositions, the complex rhythmic structures and raga improvisations of Carnatic music are extemporaneous, yet meticulously balanced with the harmonic diversity of western classical music and the unlimited expression of jazz. The band creates daring and compelling explorations that are innovative, fresh and uniquely their own.
Attesting to their dazzling virtuosity, the band’s individual members have collaborated with a veritable who´s who of modern music-from Pandit Ravi Shankar, maestro Yehudi Menuhin, Stephane Grappelli, Dr. L. Subramaniam to John McLaughlin, Zakir Hussain, and V.M. Bhatt-to name just a few.
