Arvind Venugopal – Fire and Ice

The Alchemist

Arvind Venugopal of Carnatic Fusion band TVAMEVA (meaning ‘You Are’ in Sanskrit) and host of the “Empathy Speak with Arvind Venugopal” podcast joins the Alchemicast: with Andy Reed to explore Arvind’s music influences ranging from the traditional music of India to modern American electronic and pop music, and how TVAMEVA brings them together to achieve the band’s unique offering to the World Music genre providing them the opportunity to perform on BBC, be featured on Art Across America presented by The Kennedy Center, and their full-length studio album, “Upakrama – The Beginning”, having been a finalist in the 2020 Washington Music Association Awards (WAMMIES).

When not diving into Arvind’s songwriting & composition process and production style, how his band was formed, and his experiences as an artist representing the Washington DC metropolitan area, he talks about producing a number of music videos for the band and participates in another segment of “This or That” where we find why Arvind chooses a basketball game with LeBron James over a workout with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
