Mike Tamburo, Des_Ark, Phil Cook & His Feat 

When: Fri., July 13, 9:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $5

When I first encountered the work of Mike Tamburo six years ago, I classified him as a guitarist. And yes, Tamburo's enormous billows of notes picked and packaged from an acoustic guitar shaped the bulk of his brilliant Ghosts of Marumbey, but they were far from the only anchor. Created by online and in-person collaborations with a dozen artists, those tunes would swell and dissipate with symphonic scope, speaking to the adventurousness at Tamburo's core. In the years since, the prolific Tamburo has explored dulcimer, released a box set and, most important, converted to Buddhism and taken the name Brother Ong. His latest collection, Mysteries of the Shahi Baaja, again finds Tamburo exploring a new instrumental to transcendental ends. Like a cross between a dulcimer and an autoharp, the Indian zither allows Tamburo to create clouds of sound and chord long columns of melody through them. It's beautiful, immersive stuff.
