Worldview (Insound (indie))

Avataar is inspired by the deep musical traditions of India, Africa and Brazil and rooted within a framework of modern jazz. In an innovative marriage of ancient and modern, driving grooves intersect with cinematic atmospheres and soaring melodies, creating a fresh sonic experience. Influenced by artists including Shakti, Jarrett, Oregon, Jan Garbarek, Enya, Robert Glasper, and Ornette Coleman, the music at its core is imbued with a spiritual focus that transcends its sound. The award-winning group is developing a Ntl. and Intl. reputation beyond local festival and club dates, after successful tours of Western Canada and South Africa.
