Talavya kicks off their Summer Heat Tour in USA and Canada with a return to NYC.
Globe-trotting percussion ensemble Talavya brings the Indian hand-drums tabla to the center stage, distilling its age-old spirit and practice into a high-energy, highly accessible celebration of rhythm. Composed by Pandit Divyang Vakil, the ensemble plays complex rhythmic structures with split-second perfection, gliding between meditative trance and explosive rock drum power.
"We hosted Talavya as part of the Chico World Music Festival and they were a surprise hit for many folks. Fabulous technical expertise, excellent showmanship, and an engaging personality brought scores of new fans to tabla music." - Dan DeWayne, Director, Chico Performances.
