Tarik Album Launch @ Raasta Gurgaon
Tarik is an audiovisual act from Shillong whose musical content is an eccentric blend of punk and radical themes with a Khasi twist. While their riffs are catchy, their lyrics are far from sugar coated. Strongly rooted in a DIY philosophy, the members of Tarik are proud of their uncompromisingly honest approach to music because it best captures the spirit of the space they come from. While descriptions by mainstream media have ranged from: grotesque, gutsy, rare gems, vulgar and edgy, to ridiculously profound, Tarik goes largely unaccredited (quite happily) for pioneering the advocacy of radical politics in the largely derivative music scene of Shillong.
