Join multi-cultural fusion group SwaRhythm as they launch their latest album! With the tagline “Exploring new frontiers”, Raga Rhapsodies is a neoteric exploration of the Indian Raga and Tala concepts, expanding the musical dialogue well beyond normal boundaries to include new genres and several inspired new talents, such as Anarva Wong (Morin Khuur, aMongolian horse-head fiddle) and Marco Zhang (guitar) from the Gima band; dhol players from Dhol United Singapore; traditional drummers from the Maharashtra Mandal Singapore Dhol Tasha Pathak; and Chenda drummers of Jurong Beats Singapore. Equally exciting is the recent inclusion of multiple award-winning Sitar player, Kumar Karthigesu (Malaysian National Living Heritage), who will join the veterans Bombay Anand (Carnatic violin), Lazar Sabastine (keyboards and piano) Niranajan Rao (Hindustani vocal) , Aditi Gopinathan (Carnatic Vocal), Mahesh Parameswaran (mridangam and percussion), and Nawaz Mirajkar (tabla, voice percussions), bringing a fresh and dynamic colour to the band’s music.

SwaRhythm is world music ensemble founded by Nawaz Mirajkar, based in Singapore. With its musical roots firmly entrenched in Indian classical music, Swarhythm sprouts to explore the rich tapestry of modern and contemporary music and genres, infusing Indian classical rhythms and melodies with Malay, Chinese, Spanish and other influences, bringing to bloom unique avant-garde compositions which have largely been appreciated and critically acclaimed by audiences across Singapore and the region.
Dhol United Singapore is a group of three individuals who share a strong passion and love for dhol drumming. Coming together as one from different backgrounds, the trio explores the vast world of music and percussions through the dhol.
