TVAMEVA is a World Music Fusion band based in Washington DC, blending Carnatic, Electronic, Pop, and Rock music. The band was founded by singer and producer Arvind M Venugopal, who grew up in Chennai learning Carnatic music. Post his Engineering career pursuits, he was inspired to combine his artistic passion and analytical talent to create this unique indie fusion band in 2015. Since then, TVAMEVA has released a full album, an extended play album, and two singles.
The band has expanded and now boasts of five talented members, including the multi-award-winning guitarist Rahul Mukerji. They have periodically scheduled shows at various art cafes and coffee shops in the mid-Atlantic east coast region of the US, and have featured at prestigious venues like Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage and Washington’s National Cherry Blossoms Festival.
