Fusion band Tibet2Timbuk2 is more than the sum of its parts

IT'S easy to throw around words for music like "world fusion".

But when you actually hear music of the world jammed together into something bigger than the sum of its parts, and played by musicians with a light touch and an understanding of the depths of their own sound, "world fusion" stops being a cliche and starts being a band like Tibet2Timbuk2.

Filmmaker Albert Falzon described the eclectic Brisbane-based group as not so much a performance by highly talented artists, but more a meditation that would be remembered long after the evening had finished.

They fuse an unlikely mix of rollicking Tibetan folk, afro-reggae guitar grooves, intricate Indian table, and haunting Japanese bansuri flute.

Tibet2Timbuk2 will play Bellingen Memorial Hall on Friday night as part of their Music is Life Tour.

Tickets are $15 and available from Roots Records, 6655 2159.
