Trina Basu and Arun Ramamurthy join forces to create a musical dialogue between improvisational string traditions. Well-versed in the rhythmic and melodic concepts of South Indian classical music and the harmonic language of Western classical, jazz, and folk music, the duo presents original compositions that explore the beauty found at the intersections of their creative backgrounds. The intuitive nature of two violinists allows for moments of unbridled spontaneity and intimate connection. Their sound has been described as raga meets fiddle meets experimental.

In the same way that Noguchi sought a lifelong balance between figuration and abstraction, the various compositional voices on this program deal with fragmented portraits of women in life and death.
