Kamanala - Tambura Rasa

Tambura Rasa Prod.

A musical journey begins with a single note. Four years and many notes later, Tambura Rasa’s culture crossing adventures have bridged the distance between Spanish flamenco, Balkan gypsy and Middle Eastern baladii rhythms. They are one of Vancouver’s busiest groups of border benders, who in a few short years have racked up a string of successful performances, radio broadcasts, CD recordings and video productions. Now, they’re pleased to debut their third album of global rhythms that span the Mediterranean from Spain, The Balkans, The Middle East and beyond. Kamanala is a Sanskrit word that means 'fire of love', and the disc is abundant in passionate performances. The Vancouver collective has also expanded their performances to include not only a fusion of sounds but of dance expressions as well. Mujeres, their latest video finds common ground between flamenco and belly dance. You never know where their continuing journey might take you next.
