Dhara World Music Quartet


Dhara is a world music quartet based in Los Angeles. The multi-faceted group features Vineet Vyas (Canada), Rajib Karmakar (India), James Waterman (U.S.) and Amir Oosman (Pakistan). Each member has studied in the traditions of North/South Indian music, West African rhythms, Persian music, Latin percussion and more. Dhara seamlessly fuses these backgrounds and idioms to bring audiences a performance unlike any they have ever experienced. Earlier this year, Dhara had the pleasure of recording on the 25th Anniversary Capitol Records Calarts Jazz CD and was graciously reviewed by DownBeat Magazine -
