Touching Bass


Touching Bass
In further filling out our soundscape for Inner Varnika 2018 we are proud to present the Australian premiere of the London based collective, Touching Bass.

A community of like minded, passionate and multidisciplinary artists, Touching Bass espouse the diverse and rich sounds of ethno-cultural roots and African rooted music through an inclusive, impeccably tasteful and interactive approach to the world of Afro-rhythms.

In chorus, this gifted assortment of artists looks to guarantee the legacy of Afro-music in the present, and with a view to the future, via creating a platform for dance and discussion. Sounded out through their adept voyages, expect a variety signatures ranging from Broken Beat, Jazz, R’n’B, Dancehall, Afro-Beat, Hip-Hop and Soul.

Joining us from the Touching Bass crew will be leading lights, Alex Rita and Andwot. Strongly rooted in and taking inspiration from their South-London milieu, these artists have found an audience the world over thanks to their confluence of zeal, connectedness and above all, taste. Via their acclaimed fortnightly NTS radio show and highly regarded events, these two youthful selectors have been stimulating both dialogue and dance, utilising a broad, deep knowledge and leaving in their wake a unique jetstream of inspired bounce, flow, thinks and feels.

This coming Inner Varnika Touching Bass will be to our honoured guests and we their willing dancefloor sentinels.
