A TRIO EQUALLY GROUNDED IN FOLK TRADITION AND JAZZ IMPROVISATION, PROPOSING A SOCIAL PACT AS WELL AS A MUSICAL IDEAL.
— NEW YORK TIMES
 
 

Indo-Pak Coalition from left to right: Dan Weiss, Rudresh Mahanthappa and Rez Abbasi. 

The ensemble's three formidable talents (Mahanthappa on alto saxophone, Rez Abbasi on guitar, and Dan Weiss on tabla) first documented their group conception in 2008 with Apti, which won praise from The Guardian for its "irresistible urgency." 

Agrima, the long-awaited follow-up, finds Mahanthappa and the group expanding aesthetic horizons: adding a modified drum set, incorporating effects and electronics, and working with a broader audio canvas overall.

The core of the band's sound, the vibrant presence of Indian rhythmic and melodic elements in a charged, modern improvisational framework born of the New York jazz scene, remains firmly in place.
