Navatman Music Collective
Vignesh Ravichandran is a part of the New York City-based Navatman Music Collective (NMC). NMC is a one-of-a-kind choir directed by KalaRatna Roopa Mahadevan, that aims to bring out the depth and beauty of Carnatic (South Indian classical) music while imbuing it with a soul and energy that borrows from the members' contemporary and diverse influences. Their respect for the rich tradition is paired with an honest joy for the music they sing. Their sound is simultaneously nostalgic and boundary-breaking, aiming to engage the discerning and uninitiated alike. NMC also enjoys collaborating with talented instrumentalists in the NYC area who support and inspire them.
