Atash "One word frequently used to describe Atash is "world class," as if it is unexpected of a world music group from Austin. (We beg to disagree -- Austin is one of the most fertile musical landscapes imaginable!) The group's members acknowledge the privilege of having the highest calibre of influences, having collaborated and/or mentored with greats such as Fairouz, Ali Akbar Khan, Simon Shaheen, L. Subramaniam, Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, the Sun Ra Arkestra, Aashish Khan, Vigen, Francois Rabbath, Ram Narayan, Kazem Al Saher, Chuck Rainey, Jimmie Dale Gilmore and many other distinguished artists." (Jambase)
Os Alquimistas: "Os Alquimistas atx, have decisively embarked on a transmutation of love through the universal soul of music.
Melodies both lyrical and haunting interact with flawless percussive landscapes in a bed of brazilian guitar chords, funky bass lines, electric piano, electronic ambience and berimbaus to create music that is simply irresistible and universal! A river that flows through Samba, Rock, Soul, Reggae, Funk, Afropop, Jazz… A river of music!" (WBEAT!)
