Tandava is inspired by the folk and classical music of India and Bangladesh, and draws upon the wealth of musical traditions from China, the Middle East, Africa, and the West. Tabla and polyphonic marimba provide the rhythmic and textural foundation for erhu, flutes, guitar, and vocals to soar over. Original compositions, dynamic improvisation, and arrangements of traditional styles bridge the ancient and the contemporary. To hear a sample of their music click here.

For CBC Newsworld, Adrian Harewood described the quartet as "a metaphor for Canada in the 21st century". Tandava's unique blend of instruments, musical sensibilities, and ethnic traditions results in an original voice, created from and reflecting our rich intercultural environment.

The members of Tandava are Prashant John (guitar, Bansuri flute, vocals), Lan Tung (erhu), Jonathan Bernard (marimba, percussion), and Stefan Cihelka (tabla).

“For those who have been looking for a succinct description for "world music," this is it …” Patty-Lynne Herlevi, Cranky Crow music

“So seamlessly are these threads woven together, the listener might be excused for thinking this is the traditional music of, well, someplace … this is a gorgeous album by top-notch musicians” Scott Allan Stevens, Earball Media
