Akshara, Indian Percussion Ensemble

Akshara is an exciting new percussion group rooted in Indian classical musical traditions. Comprised of virtuosic performers in Carnatic and Hindustani classical genres, Akshara performs an energetic blend of classical Indian melody and rhythm highlighted with solo and scale-based improvisations. The group performs original compositions demonstrating the powerful and complex rhythmic structures inherent in South Indian classical music. Ensemble members include Bala Skandan, composer and lead artist, Arun Ramamurthy and Trina Basu on violin, Nitin Mitta and Avi Shah on Tabla,  Balaganesh on morsing and kanjira, Thejeswini Raj and Bina Viju on konnakkol.
