Pandit Ravi Shankar had already departed from from his Hotel after a successful Berliner Museumsinsel concert, when Tanmoy Bose one of Ravi Shankar's tabla players decided to stay and check out the local Berliner Club-scene. Destiny took it's course and Tanmoy Bose met and jammed with four exceptional musicians whom are all deeply rooted in Berlin's Jazz-scene. Five months later, the four Berliners were invited to India to play a five-week tour with Tanmoys Taal Tantra. Taal Tantra is a very ambitious project which uniquely combines Classical/Traditional Indian music with European Jazz. Due to the success of this project, two greatly received follow-up tours in India and a couple of gigs in Europe have taken place and in the meantime a very close friendship between the tabla virtuoso and the Berliners has evolved. Exceptional Indian guest soloist such as The Violin Brothers from Calcutta, Debashish Bhattacharya (Shakti) or famous West-Bengalian Baul Singer Basu Dev are often part of the Taal Tantra experience.
