Tarq Bowen is an absolutely stunning Alternative Blues Artist of the new generation! He will feature his international Trio on this `Asian Winter Tour 2018` and Special Guest and Award-winning songwriter, musician and vocalist Dr. Prakash Sontakke on slide guitar.
Tarq`s unique blend of Blues, Soul and hard-hitting slide guitar interlaced with his powerful yet gentle dynamic ability shows an understanding and skill far beyond his years. Whilst Tarq draws inspiration from the likes of Debussy, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Chet Baker, his sound has been compared more accurately to artists such as Jeff Buckley and Howlin Wolf.
This has attracted the attention of Nick Mason (Pink Floyd) who recorded Tarq`s debut single, remaining an avid supporter of his music. Tarq`s sound invites the audience on a magnetic journey infused with energy and soul, leaving a unique memory that will evolve every time you see him.
Last year Tarq had the rare opportunity to be personally invited by Tony Visconti (David Bowie`s Producer), to play alongside Nitin Sawhney & Stewart Copeland of The Police, in a 6-piece documentary on his lifetime achievement, which led to Tarq flying to L.A to work with veteran producer Larry Klein. They have recorded a full concert, which will be on TV later this year.
