Bio

Mahadev lives to communicate the heart of music that exits beyond and transcends boundaries of country and genre. The members of Mahadev are highly trained musicians, composers and improvisers who also have shown great openness and sensitivity to music of various cultures and are able to evoke that organically. The members of Mahadev have studied with world-class masters and innovators of North Indian, jazz, Persian, African and Balkan music, and understand the common language that can be shared by these great musics.
