Rainseed Series - Thermal and Quarter

Thermal And A Quarter, together with Trans Indus, a unique eco village on Kanakapura Road, bring you The RainSeed Festivals, the first of which, simply called 'Guitars', will begin Saturday, November 8, 2003, 9 pm onwards.

'Guitars' will feature TAAQ and three of Bangalore's smoking new axemen, solo and in concert:

Eric Samuel: Well regarded for his extraordinary tone and expression, Eric brings a refinement to the title 'rock guitarist' that few can match. Previously with the EMDEES, Eric is currently a full-time family man, but will take time off to join TAAQ at RainSeed.

Anirban: One of the city's youngest guitar heroes, Anirban is fast accumulating his own fan base. His technique and feel are a revelation, and his versatility makes him an asset in any musical context. He has joined TAAQ on previous occasions, and this collaboration has always seen some inspired jams.

Prakash Sontakke: A Hindustani Classical performer, adept at both slide guitar and vocal, Prakash is a first-call session player in the city, and is a composer of some note. Open to experimenting with various styles, this will be his first encounter with TAAQ.

TAAQ, now working on its third album, will premiere some smoking new originals at the gig. Donor passes (only a limited number) priced at Rs 100 will be available at the venue.

Gear up for the RainSeed series, and spread the word around.
