Tatopani was–and now is again–a marvelous band that drew on diverse world music influences to create a fresh and original sound. While they clearly owe a debt to the great band Oregon, their sound is all their own. Creating a lush tapestry of sounds from interesting combinations of an intriguing array of instruments, they also improvise in unique ways.

This is not your average four-beat jazz sound. They dig into cool grooves, Indian rhythms, and exotic sounds by using instruments with fresh conceptions. The didgeridoo sounds funky and the tabla as melodic as rhythmic. Whatever genre you want to place them in, it’s great music.

The band was active in the early 2000s in Tokyo, but disbanded when members dispersed around the globe and took up different projects. So, this show will be a reunion of sorts with a slightly different line-up that looks as exciting as the original. Very highly recommended.
