Nordic Raga Trio
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Nordic Raga Trio is an inspired meeting between one Indian and two Swedish folk musicians, who want to experiment with bringing more improvisation into Nordic folk music. To find inspiration for this they use models for how improvisation is used in classical Indian music. In a typical Nordic Raga concert the emphasis is on improvised music, but the band also performs both more traditional Nordic and Carnatic music. 'Swedish waltzes and polskas meet Bangalore passion, grace and fire in this superb communion' (Herald, Fringe 2014). Jyotsna Srikanth (violin), Pr Moberg (wind instruments), Dan Svensson (percussion, vocals).
