Nakshatra @ Barbès


Jake Charkey performing along Nakshatra at Barbès

Ever heard Carnatic Chamber Jazz? Me neither- til now. Played a sweet set last night with Marika Hughes and the power team Arun Ramamurthy and Trina Basu during Marika's month-long residency at Barbès. I'd performed this music with Trina and Arun with percussion, but never with two cellos. Great combo! More to come soon...we'll be in residence at the Avaloch Farm Music Institute in June.

"free-flowing, globe-spanning"

- New Yorker

Led by violinists Trina Basu and Arun Ramamurthy, Nakshatra reimagines the potential of string Chamber Music for our global times. The group explores beauty found at the intersections of their musical paths, where original compositions weave together threads of South Indian classical, Western chamber music, jazz and creative improvisation.

Marika's Residecy - New York native Marika Hughes is a cellist who was raised in the classical tradition. Today, her music fuses that history with sounds and ideas hailing from folk, jazz, blues, and soul, plus a sprinkling of the avant-garde. Each Saturday in February, Marika will explore a different corner of her multiple musical personalities.
