About Tāla Tarang
Tāla Tarang - Rhythm Waves
Tabla and Harp
Tala Tarang enjoy giving rhythm and raag workshops over Zoom and in real life, so don't hesitate to get in touch about those! The duo has recently been supported by an Arts Council 'Develop Your Creative Practice' award, which enabled them to meet regularly to delve into unknown creative territories, in part mentored by composer Liz Dilnot Johnson, over the course of a year (2022).
Tāla Tarang embody a special chemistry, through a subtle yin-yang of two halves creating a whole. Their repertoire includes original music, folk tunes, classic pop, Bollywood, Western Classical and World music; it is a truly unique sound experience.
Tāla Tarang, which means Rhythm Waves, is aptly named as it sums up everything about this duo and their music as each performance takes both audience and the artists on a journey; like the oscillations of a wave.
Eleanor met Mendi in 2014 after hearing him at a concert with other world music artists. Since then, their friendship has grown through not only their shared love of music, but also their passion for food, travelling and philosophising about family and life-changing events. All of these shared experiences together with a mutual desire to create healing music, deeply influence their original compositions.
Mendi Singh, one of the UK's most celebrated tabla specialists today has collaborated with artists such as Pundit Shalil Shankar, Peter Gabriel, Take That, Akram Khan and Courtney Pine. In 2015 he composed the world's first Tabla Tarang Concerto. Eleanor Turner is likewise one of the UK's most cherished harp talents, forging a unique and varied path through her life in music. They have performed concerts in London, Birmingham, Lincoln, at Spain's Sentmenat Harp Festival and at various venues around the UK.
