ROOPA IN FLUX

An ensemble of musical wanderers venturing beyond the traditions that shaped them.
 

Roopa In Flux is an ensemble of musical wanderers venturing beyond the established traditions that shaped them. Led by versatile Indian classical vocalist Roopa Mahadevan, instrumental talents (quartet, trio, duo) band together for a sound grounded in classical, jazz, and soul forms from around the world, using novel arrangements and improvisational spark to express a contemporary moment. The musicians use their camaraderie, honesty, and emotional intensity to create moments that can express both individual quirk and joyful community.
