A fun fact about Dhruva is that a song he helped create is going to the moon! While he was an undergraduate at Carnegie Mellon University, his school partnered with NASA to build a “MoonArk” to transport artistic and humanities-based work to the moon. A single from the sophomore album of Dhruva’s band was selected to be one such work. The MoonArk is set to launch in the coming years.

A fun fact about Nitya is that she is an avid and skilled violin player. For five years, she played violin for long-term hospital patients. The experience was mutually beneficial – she helped provide much needed comfort as she was able to learn the stories of a variety of people.
