Brentwood Arts Exchange Listening Room

Led by composer and musical visionary Deepak Shenoy, Kundalika performs pieces that bring Indian ragas into conversation with musical traditions from the Americas and West Africa. The music we play is constantly evolving and, like most Indian classical music, gives much space for improvisation, so each performance is a unique and passionate experience.
