About

On the border of India and Pakistan, deep in the Rajasthani desert, the lives and works of Australian artists Jeff Lang and Bobby Singh collided fatefully with that of Asin Langa and Bhungar Manganiyar. Maru Tarang – or Ripples of the Desert – is the result.

A unique collaboration between two hemispheres, cultures and musical histories, Maru Tarang perform a repertoire spanning ancient Rajasthani folk songs reimagined through Australian roots music, seminal blues by Robert Johnson enriched with Indian flavours and soulful expressions through deep, original and fiery improvisations.

 

Awards & Reviews

‘Hypnotic grooves that ebb and flow ... complex, ancient tales that leap and fall like flickering flames.’

‘Australian roots music tinged with classical Indian rhythms … and the effect is mesmerising.’
