Improvised out-jazz/art rock with a focus on Middle Eastern/South Asian melody, rhythms, and drones.

"Sacramento trio Swimming in Bengal makes music like hookah smoke. Slow, sensual and snakish, their Indian-influenced blend of drone and raga builds exponentially past mere Eastern imitation and into a state of pure, hypnotic Param dhama" - Decoder UK
