About this Performance
ATMA came together in March 2020 as a way of preserving its musical heritage through the performance of ragas—traditional South Indian music built around drones and improvisations that swell and evolve to match the mood of the evening. The group’s name is both an acronym that stands for Alliance for Tradition in Musical Arts and the Sanskrit word for “soul,” a fitting description of their dedication to the legacy of raga and their passionate performances. Featuring principal violinist Aishwarya, the group performs a trio of pieces that blend the range and style of Indian and western instrumentation and whose insistent pulse provides the fuel for a rich and meditative evening.
