Enjoy Indian melodies and soulful rhythms, fused with euphonic electronic music, at a live performance by “TABLATRONICS” at Phoenix Marketcity this Saturday. This is not one to be missed!
A fusion band, with a confluence of traditional Indian and modern world music, Tablatronics has 5 members, who are as follows; Heiko Dijker on the Tabla, Igor Bezjet on Guitar, Mark Alban Lotz on the Flute, Sharat Chandra Srivastava (who is also a member of India’s premier Rock and Roll band ‘Parikrama’) on the Violin and Davide on Hang Drum. Whilst you will almost definitely have heard of the other instruments, you may not be familiar with the Hang Drum – it is often called the handpan drum and was created by Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer of PANArt Hangbau AG in Bern, Switzerland. The instrument is made of two convex sheets of steel which are glued together. They have tuned notes on the top (and sometimes the bottom) that can be played with the hands. Each instrument is tuned to a single scale such as Major, Minor or Harmonic Minor. No understanding of music theory is required to create beautiful music because there are no wrong notes in the single scale. This also allows a player to improvise from a more emotional and kinetic inspiration free of the mind. Many players use these instruments for personal meditation and sound healing, which is why Davide plays this in the band as it adds the soulful and euphonic elements to their music.
