The Epichorus performs Indo-Arabic roots music - contemporary music inspired by the old sound. They are lineage holders in classical traditions from India to Egypt and Greece, alongside Jazz and fusion aficionados. Master vocalist Priya Darshini serenades beyond the bounds of language, moving fluidly between Hebrew, Hindi and Aramaic backed by Oud, Violin, Accordion, Hammered Dulcimer, Percussion and Upright Bass. Come ready to be transported by ethereal music reminiscent of a loftier home.
