Talvin Singh & Tabtek

Talvin Singh & TabtekFrom England, India

"Talvin Singh is simultaneously one of the most gifted young tabla payers on the Indian classical music circuit and one of the pioneers of the British Asian electronic music"

Lo-fi electronica meets the intense rhythms of Indian classical music in TabTek, a high energy audio and spectacular visual experience fusing the live percussions of Mercury Award-winner Talvin Singh with break and broken beats. Against a backdrop of visuals by artist Soichi Matsumoto, Singh plays live tabla, handsonic and keyboards while Oscar Vizan operates the Mac, keyboard and effects unit. Hot tablatronica from the man who has collaborated with the likes of Sun Ra, Björk and Siouxsie and the Banshees.
