Talambra

With powerful, passionate original "world-jazz" compositions and dynamic new arrangements of traditional music from Spain, India, Turkey, Eastern Europe and the Arab world, Talambra is a rich meeting place for four diverse Canadian performers.

Talambra is an exciting synergy: the solid foundation of bowed and plucked double bass, the fluidic freedom of soaring sax - from sopranino down to baritone, the fiery percussive precision of flamenco guitar, and the crisp melodic rhythms of tabla and darabuka.

Talambra's sound is warm and intimate - infused with lyricism, groove and the spontaneous joy of improvisation.

talam = rhythm, musical time (Sanskrit)
ambra = semi-precious resin with electrical properties (Latin)
