Sivamani Trio is Sivamani's latest World Fusion band, featuring two hugely talented young musicians - sitarist Ravi Chary and keyboardist Harmeet Manseta. Their music is mostly raag based but with western harmonies and orchestration woven into it. The composed themes are just vehicles for interpretation & improvisations making the parameters very wide, allowing plenty of room for improvisation, cross rhythmic explorations, call & response, jugalbandis & pure telepathic encounters.
