Navatman Music Collective at Golden Fest (Zlatne Uste Golden Festival)
Time & Location
About the Event
Navatman Music Collective (NMC) is a one-of-a-kind choir that explores the depth and beauty of Carnatic (South Indian classical) music while imbuing it with diverse, contemporary influences. Known for their "lavish, paradigm-shifting choral sounds," the choir finds joy in the pure act of singing. Based in the cosmopolitan New York City, NMC brings to Carnatic music new presentation formats, cross-genre collaborations, original compositions, and a sense of diverse, judgement free community.
NMC has performed in several venues such as Symphony Space, Roulette, and Museum of the Moving Image, as well as festivals including the American Folk Festival, Make Music New York, Ragas Live/Brooklyn Raga Massive, and Drive East. Navatman was honored to be one of the choirs featured in the Mile Long Opera, the ambitious public installation project staged on the High Line in 2018. Navatman released its album An Untimely Joy in the fall of 2016.
