‘Raga Garage’ is a mixing pot of many Indian and European influences culminating in an unique blend of Indian Carnatic and European classical sounds layered and embellished with contemporary folk, pop, and jazz ornamentation. Imagine this topped up with exotic and ethnic rhythms!

The music is designed to attract fans of contemporary, fusion, folk, classical, jazz and roots music from all ages. A young music convert at Capri, in Italy said, Raga Garage was to him, the sophisticated coming together of the sounds of the West and the East in a simple and enjoyable way – though in the Raga garage’s music labs the integration of Western and Indian music posed many problems as the styles and fundamentals are so opposing.

Artists : Robert Atchison – Western Violin, Jyotsna Srikanth – Indian Violin, Pirashannna Thevarajah – World Percussion, Indian traditional drums, Ghatam and Shadrach Solomon - Keyboards
