Mahakala Music publishes aggressively beautiful art music, bringing together musicians from disparate geographic and cultural backgrounds.
The name "Mahakala" refers to Buddhist (and Hindu) deity known to be the wrathful emanation of the deity of compassion. "Wrath" and "compassion" seem superficially to be at odds with one another, but they are not.
Music and art share a parallel here. Can music be wrathful & angry but still convey compassion and beauty? Yes.
Our aim is to capture the music made at that nexus.
