Talvin Singh born 1970 in Leytonstone, east London is an accomplished Tabla player, electronic musician, music theorist, record producer and DJ. As a solo artist, he is perhaps best known as the father of modern Asian electronica music, though he is also a highly celebrated tabla player, record producer and visual practitioner.

Singh is notable for re-introducing the concepts of Indian classical music to western pop, dance and Jazz genre’s in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. Singh’s solo album credits include critical and commercial successes OK (winning the UK’s 2 most prestigious music prizes, “The South Bank Prize” and “The Mercury” in 1999) and HA (2001). Singh has pursued several artistic ventures parallel to and in conjunction with his music career, including creating the seminal London club ANOKHA , performing at the Tate Gallery in London, creating a sound installation at the Frith Street Gallery in London and composing music for various experimental Dance, Theatre and Film projects. In 1990 Singh conceived the Tablatronic, a hybrid electronic/analog tabla (drum) which utilizes a rare internal microphone system.

DJ KYLE LONG
(Cultural Cannibals- Indianapolis) | LIVE BHANGRA INFUSED SET
http://www.culturalcannibals.com
Kyle Long never planned to become a DJ. Friends, impressed by his large record collection and extensive music knowledge, forced him to play his first gig. When this first performance led to an invitation to perform with tabla master Badal Roy, Long immediately decided to pursue the craft full time. Known for his genre exploding mixes, it’s not uncommon to hear him blending early 70’s Ethiopian jazz music with the latest Dubstep records from London. Long has established successful monthly Brazilian, Arabic and Indian music events in Indianapolis, the first of their kind in his hometown. In 2009 Long partnered with visual artist Arthur Silva to form Cultural Cannibals a clothing brand and event production company.
