Karavika draws from the rich classical & folk traditions of India, Europe and America. In their debut album, “Sunrise”, they feature original music inspired by the rhythmic complexities of Indian Classical music as well as collaborative arrangements inspired by old film and folk music from South Asia.
Trina Basu – Violin
Amali Premawardhana – Cello
Perry Wortman – Bass
Advait Shah – Tabla
“Karavika’s music is a powerfully sincere blend of American and Indian musical influences. They craft beautiful string arrangements that soar above versatile bass playing and virtuosic tabla grooves . Drawing heavily on improvisational styles, every performance I’ve been to is a unique experience.”
