With the support and active participation of a team of committed volunteers, the California nonprofit Across Arts will stage its inaugural program featuring the premier, eclectic fusion band from India, Indian Ocean (www.indianoceanmusic.com). In 1984, Susmit met Asheem during a concert. Asheem played the tabla while Susmit played the guitar. For the next three years, every now and then, they jammed as a duo.

The band’s album Kandisa (2000) went on to acquire cult status. The band became a keenly awaited presence on the college circuit, with repeat invites from big cities and smaller towns all around the country. In August 2001, they played at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and were nominated the Pick of the Fringe. They returned to the Fringe in 2002 and 2003.

In 2002, the band played 37 concerts internationally across four continents.

Indian Ocean’s fourth album Jhini was released in 2003, along with the band’s first music video for the title track.

Across Arts Foundation is delighted to present the Indian Ocean band on Saturday, Aug 23, 2008 (7 pm), at Spangenberg Theater (Gunn High School) in Palo Alto, Calif. For online ticketing and concert details, please visit the recently launched Across Arts web site http://www.acrossarts.org, email info@acrossarts.org or call (858) 254-2366.

Across Arts Foundation (http://www.acrossarts.org), a California-based not-for-profit organization, incorporated in 2008, aims to offer a unique cultural preservation and integration forum engaged in sponsoring, managing and presenting a diverse array of Indian inspired, cross-over artistic events. These include contemporary performing and visual arts, film, fashion & literature with fusion themes that will transcend conventional classification and serve to unify art forms across traditions, cultures and regions.
