Their second Canadian festival performance on Talavya’s Summer Heat 2012 Tour is at the Mission Folk Festival. From South America to Australia, Scandinavia to Polynesia, North America to India and beyond – six continents and the seven seas – music is pouring in from all over the world for the 25th annual Mission Folk Music Festival! Join us to celebrate 25 years of bringing the world’s great music to Mission!
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.
OTHER MISSION FOLK FESTIVAL ARTISTS INCL: Eliza Gilkyson (US), Habadekuk (Denmark), Los Pinguos (Argentina), H’Sao (Canada / Chad) and more. Check out www.missionfolkfestival.ca for full line-up.
