"...A gorgeous contrast between the long, sinewy, singing lines of the violin and cello and the tabla's intricate burble and pop punctuation, riding the warm pizzicato heartbeat of the bass. It is a liquid and organic brew that sounds inevitable, as if it's existed forever... A dynamic sonic blend of uncommon mesmeric beauty." - Dan McClenaghan, All About Jazz
"A diversely melodic, often hypnotic original sound that occasionally reaches toward Appalachian rusticity or a brisk Celtic mood... Whether quiet and reflective or joyously energetic, the melodies are as bright as the musicians' tone: this is music for celebrating or getting lost in" - Lucid Culture
"I am deeply touched by the creative spirit of Karavika. Their genuine and sincere desire to express their understanding of Indian culture and heritage, as prevalent in Indian music, is truly impressive. They have the tools and know how to use it. In all respect Karavika assures me of the true essence of Indian music being maintained while presented western context."
Samir Chatterjee, Tabla player, Founder/director of Chhandayan Center for Indian Music
"Karavika's music is a powerfully sincere blend of American and Indian musical influences. They craft beautiful string arrangements that soar above versatile bass playing and virtuosic tabla grooves . Drawing heavily on improvisational styles, every performance I've been to is a unique experience."
Mike Block, Cellist, Yo Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble
“…one of the most exciting Indo-world music ensembles... together they combine their talents to crossover effortlessly from Indian to Western music, creating a new sound that is very accessible and pleasing to the ear."
