Join Toronto Tabla Ensemble for the official release party of their new album, BHUMIKA. This concert will include percussion-driven pieces from the album and feature the addition of new members Nilan Chaudhuri and William Rossel based out of San Francisco. The album will be available for sale at the show and is out now on iTunes and Spotify.
Since 1991, the Ensemble has mesmerized audiences using the rhythms and grooves of North India to collaborate with music and dance from around the world. Bhumika follows this blueprint with its modern, high-energy approach. The new repertoire has brought audiences to the edge of their seats by showcasing the complexity of pure traditional tabla augmented by South Indian percussion, Japanese taiko, and kathak dance to create a high energy stage presence.
Founded by tabla master Ritesh Das, Toronto Tabla Ensemble has performed to sold-out audiences across Canada, USA, Australia and India. They were nominated for a JUNO Award for their album Firedance and their compositions have been licensed for commercials, films, and as the theme music for CBC Radio’s daily Metro Morning.
