TAAL TANTRA - A WORLD MUSIC SHOW
Buffalo Drums to the Tabla
Music has never been just a living for me, it is the medium that has elevated me to a height where I see myself as a person with better understanding of myself and the world around me. The more I travel the more I am enlightened with various unique diversities existing in the world of music, the playing, the forms, the structures, etc. This makes me think that a lifetime may not be enough to master or understand this great art. The understanding of this great art, however, changes with experience & age.
Taaltantra in recent years has emerged as one of the foremost world music bands regularly enthralling audiences in the Mid-East, North America, Europe and India experimenting with timeless Jazz, Indian Classical Music, Folk Music and indigenous drumming. Taaltantra takes you to the world of sounds and makes you experience a unique synthesis. The name signifies “sadhana” or worship through rhythm.
Even though Taaltantra essentially is not dealing with just drumming , it has elements of various instrumentation coming full circle. The world of sound is the forte of the band which is worth experiencing.
