Amanda Turk

Amanda Turk grew up in a very musical family and was exposed to drumming at an early age by her father who was a kit drummer. But it wasn't until she met her current teacher, Raquy, and picked up a dumbek in 2006 that she found her true musical calling. Since then Amanda has immersed herself in Middle Eastern percussion under the guidance of contemporary percussion masters Raquy Danziger (Brooklyn) and Bunyamin Olguncan (Istanbul).

Ricardo Frota

Ricardo Frota’s music reflects his diverse style and improvisational approach to sound. He draws inspiration from African, Native American, indigenous peoples, South American, and Brazilian music. Ricardo's performances highlights the use of traditional rhythm instruments, electric violin, as well instruments made of recycled and natural found objects.
