Album Notes
Just like a curator in a museum who collects items to make a complete, well rounded collection, "Karma Curating" follows that same concept, where the individual chooses what should be in their life. This album can serve as a soundtrack to that search of consciousness and wholeness. This album originated from the Naryan's live performances, which consist of sitar and world groove loops.

Born into a family with roots extending from India to Ireland, Naryan's interests in music started at the early age of 8. He started playing basic Western instruments like drum set and guitar. On these instruments, Naryan created music ranging from punk rock to folk and many places in between.
During his teen years, Naryan began exploring his roots by traveling to India and soon learned the styles of Classical Indian music. Through his travels, he learned to borrow concepts and styles from many world traditions. His main instruments are hammered dulcimer (santoor), sitar, and hand percussion.

Naryan has performed with and/or shared bills with Max Creek, Rob Wasserman, Toubab Krewe, The Heavy Pets, Consider the Source, Michael Kang (String Cheese Incident), Steve Molitz (Particle), Melvin Seals and JGB, Rudresh Manthrappa, and Family FUNKtion and the Sitar Jams. He has also recorded with the world renowned North Indian Classical vocalists V.J. Kichlu and South Indian percussionist T.S. Nandakumar. Naryan has performed on over 15 independently released recordings and has toured the United States and Canada as a performer.

Today, Naryan performs mainly on sitar with electronic worldly loops. The arrangement allows for much improvisation and ranges in sound from light atmospheric sounds to straight up dance grooves! He refined this sound arrangement through his weekly music residency in Western New York since 1998.

Naryan is also the founder of epoch music located in Western New York. The label is dedicated to refined sounds and celebrates diversity through world traditions, electronics and all things unique. Naryan is also head engineer of epoch music's own recording studio, Ananda Kharakhane.
