Triangle of Tension

Triangle Of Tension combines the skills and experience of three of Tasmania’s most versatile performers: Roman Astra (vocals, sitar), Thomas Oxley (five-string bass) and Santhanam Gopala (Mridhangam).

Santhanam is a classically trained South Indian master percussionist who will send your head in a spin if you just watch his hands. Astra has been around Tasmania’s music scene for over 25 years and the sitar still teaches him new tricks every time he picks it up. Oxley is studying a degree of music from the Tasmanian Conservatorium and is able to match Santhanam's rhythms beat by beat.
