New York City based violinists Trina Basu and Arun Ramamurthy met in 2007 and it was love at first sound. They’ve been collaborating ever since. And in January of 2023 the pair released their debut album - Nakshatra. Already, it’s landed on Billboard’s “Classical Crossover Albums” chart and has received high praise from many publications - us included. Epicenter-NYC founder and publisher S. Mitra Kalita talked to Trina and Arun about their backgrounds in music, making it in New York City, and the new album. They’ll also be joined by Epicenter co-founder and creative director Nitin Mukul.
