Bhedam is a journey into new territory, an improvisational and contemporary stew with a healthy dose of Karnatic ingredients mixed in. Bhedam is an international collective of musicians based in Amsterdam, who share an affinity for non-western music.

For the month of January, 2002, we lived in Bangalore, India, rehearsing, performing and recording.

During the preparation with the two Indian percussionists, it struck us how much we share each other’s musical vision. They have since become regular members of Bhedam.
