keltik

Founded by violinist Chris Vitas and guitarist Fred Benedetti, Keltic Kharma started as a duo. Chris and Fred were known as the "MIDI Bros." performing a variety of styles of music including Celtic with MIDI instruments. After many years Chris & Fred went back to their roots with acoustic violin & guitar and started to play traditional Celtic music, but with some interesting differences--they would change meters (time feel) from 6/8 to 4/4, or 9/8 to 3/4. This was interesting for them and their audiences. The new CD "Keltik Kharma"is a departure from the traditional Celtic music that Chris & Fred play because 90% of it is original music. The tunes are written by outstanding musicians from the San Diego area that both Fred & Chris have known for years.

Instrumentation: Violin, Irish Flute, Guitar, Bass, Strings, Drums & percussion.
