ABOUT

Aditya Prakash, an LA native from a family richly immersed in South Indian culture, Aditya’s intensive musical studies began in childhood. In 2010, he founded the Aditya Prakash Ensemble, a unique group framing Aditya’s highly ornamented, powerful Carnatic vocal style with jazz, funk, hip hop and much more.

Austin Myles Grant (Guitar) is a multi-instrumentalist based in Los Angeles. As a guitarist, self taught at an early age, Grant would go on to study with classical guitar virtuoso Christopher Parkening. His classical training combined with his experience in a wide array of other styles and genres, has made Grant a unique and sought after technician of the instrument. As a performer, he has played with such artists as opera star Charles Castronovo, pop singer RuthAnne, and American songwriter Austin Hanks, opening for such artists as ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Grant has released two solo records and has become an increasingly sought after recordist and producer.

Sruti Sarathy is a versatile violinist, singer, and composer with roots in the South Indian classical tradition. Her original music is also influenced by elements from the North Indian classical form, spoken word, literature in many Indian and Western languages, and theater.  Her style and sound bring out the voice of the Indian violin in a contemporary and imaginative way.

Now based in the Bay Area and Chennai, Sruti began her musical training at the age of three under Guru Smt. Anuradha Sridhar, a sixth-generation violinist from the Lalgudi family of musicians.  Sruti has also studied Hindustani music, the North Indian classical form, under violinist Vid. Kala Ramnath.

Sruti has received accolades both in India and in the United States for her artistry, including the “Best Violinist” award from the Madras Music Academy for her performances in 2018 and 2019. She collaborates with Carnatic musicians and performs in festivals across the world. She often takes the role of composer-performer for dance and theater works. She has composed several original scores for the Bay Area Drama Company’s productions.  Sruti is the creator of Sound Thoughts, a project exploring resonances between music and literature.

Sruti is a graduate of Stanford University, where she studied French literature.  She received a Fulbright Scholarship in 2016 from the US Department of State to study cross-genre approaches to the Carnatic violin.  She is also the recipient of several grants from organizations including the Alliance for California Traditional Arts, and, most recently, the Creative Work Fund.

Indian-American percussionist and composer Dr. Rohan Krishnamurthy is one of the leading voices of Indian classical and cross-genre music in the South Asian diaspora. Acclaimed a “musical ambassador” by The Times of India, he received mridangam training from the esteemed Indian guru, Sri. Guruvayur Dorai. He studied jazz and funk drum set with Alan Hall at the California Jazz Conservatory and tabla with Pt. Swapan Chaudhuri at the Ali Akbar College of Music. Distinguished as a soloist, composer, and collaborator, Rohan performed with legendary Indian classical musicians and cross-over artists. Rohan holds a Ph.D. in musicology from the Eastman School of Music and directs the RohanRhythm Percussion Studio. Rohan is the recipient of prestigious international awards and grants including recent commissions from the San Francisco Arts Commission, Zellerbach Foundation, and Goethe Institute (Germany). He teaches ethnomusicology at Ohlone College in the San Francisco Bay Area and his patented RohanRhythm drum tuning system is available worldwide.
