RAJAS is a musical ensemble that explores the resonances among Indian music, jazz/creative music, and other improvisational traditions. Led by Maryland- raised mrudangam (South Indian percussion) artist and composer Rajna Swaminathan, the group is set to release their debut record, Of Agency and Abstraction  April 26th, 2019, on Biophilia Records.
