TTN 100 | Triveni



Rivers flow from different points of origin and then they meet at various places, just naturally and eventually merge with the ocean. The journey of "Trivenii" has a semblance to this very natural process. Pradeep Kumar, Manonmani and Viveick Rajagopalan come together for the first time as "Triveni" to present their mellifluous journey.

Pradeep seeks to present some unique compositions in his free-spirited style, while playing the slide guitar. Manonmani on sarangi adds the depth to the sound and Viveick Rajagopalan, explores a hybrid sound of acoustic and electronic sounds, with his mridangam, udu, cajon and Ableton Live.
