Raw Silk

Block title

Raw Silk blends classical sitar, electric cello, Indian vocals and experimental electronics into a long-form head massage. Hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, Alexa Richardson (cello) and Ami Dang (sitar, voice, electronics) started making music together as part of living room jam sessions and eventually realized that their sonic interests couldn’t be better matched: they both push the envelope of their classically-trained upbringings through string instruments (that surprisingly complement one another). Sharing a matched affinity for classical, experimental, pop and global sonic palettes, they have continued to challenge one another's musical limits with an exploration of instrument and genre.
