Rakkatak merges rhythms and melodies influenced by classical Indian music with western instrumentation and a pop music aesthetic. Rakkatak started as Anita Katakkar‘s solo project, out of her need to highlight and share the subtle beauty of tabla, in a non-traditional way. Having lived in multicultural Toronto all her life, Anita’s diverse taste in music ranging from folk to reggae to rock to ambient electronica is reflected in Rakkatak’s self titled CD; an album conceived in studio. From there, the band Rakkatak was formed and its evolution continued with the release of their latest album “Open” in 2014. Now, they in studio and are gearing up to release their 3rd album in late 2016.

Featuring tabla player Anita Katakkar, sitarist Rex Van der Spuy, bassist Oriana Barbato and percussionist Randolf Jimenez, this band’s multi-faceted creativity and eclectic musicianship combust on stage to create a unique, coloured and intoxicating vibe.
