TGS PLAYER SPOTLIGHT - SURFACE TO AIR


Surface to Air Spotlight


"Blood Simple" from their CD Surface to Air
TGS Spotlight Player from June 21, 2012

With spare elegance, haunting melodies, and infectious rhythms, Surface to Air — Rohin Khemani on tabla and percussion, Jonti Siman on upright bass, and Jonathan Goldberger on acoustic guitar — combined their varied and extensive musical experiences and influences to create an album of lush textures and musical interplay that takes listeners through a rich cinematic soundscape. At times playful and others quiet and contemplative, Surface to Air perfects the musical dichotomy between tension and drama, serenity and tranquility.


The band members hail from all over the world — the U.S., South Africa, and Canada — and have brought their unique instrumental and compositional voices to bear on Surface to Air to create a distinct musical vision. Khemani, (Red Baraat, Sacha Silva Ensemble), Siman, (A Big Yes and a Small No, Fat Mama, Erik Deutsch’s Hush Money), and Goldberger (Todd Sickafoose’s Tiny Resistors, Josh Roseman Band, Jim Black) have played with some of the most respected musicians in the world. They are currently on tour along the East Coast in support of their debut self-titled release on NCM East Records.
