Voted ‘Best Group’ in the MTM South West & South Wales Asian & Ethnic Minorities Awards 2014.

‘Sam’ is the first beat of a taal, or Indian rhythmic cycle. It’s literal translation is ‘together’. It is around this beat that the musicians weave their virtuosic improvisations and intricate compositions, passing the music between them, with each Avartan, or cycle inspiring the next.
