The eighth World Music Night concert will be held at Culport as always, and will be featuring Dos Orientales, Rey Tambor, and local band Windbeat.
As many people living in Kochi already know, Windbeat is a five piece ensemble that mixes guitar, various percussion, and shakuhachi (and iPhone!). If you have not yet been to one of their concerts, check out their homepage.
Ray Tambor are a trio of Tambor drums from Uruguay continuing a 200 year tradition of Afro-Uruguayan rhythm Candombe. Listening to these guys is not only very enjoyable, but also educational. Read up more about this musical style at the link above.
Dos Orientales consists of a keyboardist from Brazil and a percussionist from Japan. They write amazing arrangements that make the music seem so much more than just a piano and percussion.
We hope you’ll make it out to this event as summer vacation is wrapping up. There will be a lot of food around as well, so come on an empty stomach and enjoy a variety of flavors, sounds and people at this wonderful event that has become another signature event of Kochi.
