Raga to Reggae: Aruba in Wonderland & UMS (2013)

Tara Arts present

Thurs 7th Nov | 7.30pm

London based glitch-soul duo Aruba in Wonderland, described as “Donnie Darko meets Watership Down” provide a delicious yet haunting vibe, drenched in tripped-out atmosphere.

Camilo Tirado, keys player, live electronics wizard, percussionist and classically trained tabla player, provides the perfect bedding for Aruba Red’s distinctive and intimate vocals, unique lyrical content and soulful melodies. Together they create a fluid and enticing soundscape for the dreamers.

After working on various projects, together and separately, Camilo Tirado and Aruba Red are excited to come together to unveil the new material they have been working on since plunging into this unprecedented rabbit hole.
