Its a space which shows the young Indian women in their poweful creative best and inspires other women to join the movement.
Sometimes using unassuming objects like Tibetan prayer bowls, ghungroos and street percussive instruments, and sometimes electronic live loops from a laptop, this space creates a multi-harmonic sound steered by two contrasting and motivated female frontwomen in the outfit- Tritha Sinha and Ritika Singh.

In the winter of 2008, one evening Tritha along with her friend, Ritika decided to make music very “simply”… Using unassuming objects like a Tibetan prayer bowl, a ghungroo (used by Indian kathak dancers on their feet) and many other street percussive objects, they created a two voice harmonic sound
SPACE is now a journey where musicians, dancers and visual artists from various parts of the world keep boarding and sharing their human experiences through musical conversations.
