Ayurveda is an independent, progressive, and alternative rock band based out of Ithaca, NY. They are NeoNepalese folk rock musicians as well. Their original and (selective) cover work is progressive, rock-infused, and Ayurvedic. The five member band is: Tom Burchinal (vocals and keys), Diwas Gurung (guitar and vocals), Shikhar R. Bajracharya (guitar), Dan Halperin (bass and laptop), and Mike Parker (drums).
Ayurveda (pronounced ī-er-'vā-de) is a Sanskrit word (संस्कृतम्) meaning the knowledge of life. The band chose its name based on their connection with Ayurvedic and humanistic principles.; its members strive to express this connection through their music.
