Come on a musical journey at the next Tribal Gathering of Tongue Tasters. Intromission Polar will transport you to unknown worlds with the sounds of the rubab, tampura, and guzheng. This multi-genre performance will combine Psychedelic Rock, Free Jazz, Avant-garde, Folk, and World Music. Join Under the Velvet Sky as they team up with Gulayu Arkestra in a mind-altering, psychedelic exposition on alternative instruments, improvisation, and psychedelia.
Under the Velvet Sky (UTVS) is a collective of multi-instrumentalists who share a passion for improvisation. The band started out as a 3-piece jam band with Jordan, Reef & Din Morello in 1998. UTVS have been performing consistently after the release of their debut CD. For their first live gig, they were chosen to close the Singapore Arts Festival 2009 open mic session at City Hall. UTVS often play at underground and alternative venues. Early this year, UTVS was selected to participate in an artist residency in Pulau Ubin, a project run by The Artist Village.
