An unique blend of mixing different cultures with Indian Classical Music. Fingerprints compositions are all based on different Indian Classical ragas with a touch of Western Classical, Jazz, Afro & Latin music. We use many ancient instruments from India like a Pakhawaj which is the oldest north Indian Classical Drum & mainly being used with Dhrupad Music from Ancient India. Apart from Pakhawaj, Tabla, Dhak, Bangla Dhol, Ghatam, Kanjira, Derbuka, Djembe & Cajon we use about 25 different percussion instruments in our music. We use a lot of mantras & Sanskrit verses(Slokas) in our compositions mixed with ancient vocal percussion technique the Konnakol(from South India). For further details please check the attachment.
