Indian Street Drummers - Indian Percussion

March 23, 2017 1 min read

Indian Street Drummers - Indian Percussion

Street style, ecstatic South Indian ceremonial drumming, raw and primal beats from the gullies of South India – a wildly unconventional bundle now made accessible to producers worldwide.

Presenting EarthMoments’ latest collection - Indian Street Drummers - Indian Percussion - showcasing the heart and soul of the streets of India with the original, largely undocumented sounds of Tapattam street drummers.  

This tradition of Tapattam drumming was traditionally practiced at funeral processions by communities that were considered the ‘untouchables’ of Indian society. Today, the Tapattam art form is a part of many religious and sacred temple festivals, and lends itself to contemporary perspectives with its timeless tribal trance rhythms, that brings roots to the dance floor. 
 
The mystic power of this drum is used to convey a range of emotions – from sorrow and anger, to happiness and ecstasy, connecting the material world of the player to his/her spiritual world. Recorded at different BPMs with a complex selection of tempos and rhythms to choose from, the bundle provides a starkly hypnotic library of otherworldly percussion - guaranteed to inspire.

The South of India, a sonic epicenter where music is often less a performance art form reserved exclusively for the stage, more an extension of daily existence, an everyday reality. As a predominantly oral music tradition passed on from generation to generation, children are taught by their mothers, fathers, grandparents, learning to live and breathe their music more than merely just playing it.
