Drawing their name from the Greek αρχαί meaning “source of action”, ARKAI channels the diversity of the world through genre-bending music and sonic exploration. Recent graduates of The Juilliard School, violinist Jonathan Miron and cellist Philip Sheegog formed ARKAI after meeting through the Artist as Citizen Conference, a gathering of young artists from around the country intent on using the arts for social change. Past engagements have included performances at The Met Breuer’s first commissioned sound-based installation: Oliver Beer’s Vessel Orchestra, Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, the Peace First Summit, the 92nd Street Y. They have also created Global Perspectives, an educational world music program piloted at The Juilliard School, and hosted open improvisation jams in New York City. ARKAI is a recipient of a Chamber Music America Ensemble Forward Grant, made possible with generous support from the New York Community Trust.
We have a repertoire of original compositions and arrangements which fuse classical, jazz, pop, rock, and world music traditions into a new, explosive synthesis.
