BRM presents a two set evening at the beautiful restaurant and venue, Sisters in Brooklyn. 
7:00 PM Doors, 8:00 PM Music

Violinists Trina Basu and Arun Ramamurthy reimagine the potential of string chamber music with a unique sound both deeply intimate and cinematically expansive. Deeply rooted in traditions of South Indian classical music, Western chamber music, jazz and folk styles, the duo creates a sound that feels ancient, orchestral, and contemporary or as The New Yorker put it, “free-flowing and globe-spanning.” Trina and Arun reach both deep into their past and high into the celestial realm, culminating in a lush and spiritual collaboration that bridges traditions and defies genres.

TRANPE is the convergence of Sheila Anozier's deep relationship with Haitian folk melodies and Vodou and Rufus Cappadocia's mastery of modal music and polyrhythm. Together, they create a transcendent version of the "Mizik rasin".
