Description:
The Carnatic canon is remixed in this seamless integration of styles as the group expands on the traditional compositions in explosive, improvisational flights of fancy. Arun’s original work pays homage to Carnatic rhythmic structures and rich tonalities while expanding the music with a modern jazz backbeat.
