Andrew started studying the piano and harmony in Cologne at the age of eight in 1965,studying the works of JS Bach, Haydn, Beethoven and Chopin. The works by György Ligeti, Arvo Pärt, Terry Riley, Philip Glass and Steve Reich inspired his compositions for Contemporary Dance and Visual Performing Arts. Further collaborations included prominent, classical Hindustani Masters such as Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan (Qawwali), Sayeeduddin Dagar (Dhrupad) and Pakistani Sarod virtuoso Asad Qizilbash (ICM).

Ricky began studying the sitar and Indian Classical Music (ICM) in 1972/75 with Punita Gupta a disciple of Ravi Shankar. He then studied with Bengali sitar player Pandit Ganguly between 1975 and 1977 and became obsessed with ICM after first hearing the music via the Beatles and the explorations of George Harrison. The two main influences in this genre are Bengali sitar player Nikhil Banerjee and Vilayat Khan.

With Andrew Goldberg on piano and Ricky Romain on sitar, these modern riffs on historical Indian Music alchemically fuse both East and West to produce a deeply meditative effect.

A superlative collaboration of two masters, musicians in their fields. A creation of an entirely unique
sound which transported the audience to new realms. We were blown away.
