An amalgamation of traditions are explored and reconfigured to leave you spellbound.
DELTAS is a Portuguese-Brazilian instrumental group based in Portugal.
Their instrumental soundscape merges the traditional sounds from northeastern Brazil, Europe and the United States, mixing Brazilian Baião, Celtic music and Blues and the Arabic world.
It doesn't matter where one begins and the other ends: their music slides over the border regions common to these rhythms, just as the waters of the Capibaribe, Tejo and Mississippi rivers would be indistinguishable if they flowed together.

Khoomei Beat is a new sound of Tuva. Their music unites utterly traditional Tuvan throat singing, earthy sounds of traditional instruments doshpuluur and Igil, the laser-precise drumming, rough-edged bass and soaring cello sounds that rush through the soul like the wind from an eagle’s wing.
Seasoned with elements of funk and pop, it brings together images of the great wide-open and energy of a modern drive.
