Drawing upon a particular astrological healing ritual known as the 'Bali Ritual', the music of Baliphonics draws upon the profound and ecstatic ritual music of Sri Lankan culture, providing insight into this rich tradition in a contemporary context. Established in 2009, the unique Baliphonics quartet combine the yak bera (devil drum), drum set, and double bass with traditional ritual chant and dance, promises sonically and visually intense, visceral experience for audience members. The group’s latest recording transforms and transports listeners into a traditional the past, while at the same time testifying to the fact that even age-old rituals, struggling to find a place in contemporary, globalized society, embody culture's constant evolution.
