The Music of Inlakesh is inspired by the manifestations and creative pulsations of consciousness, ceremonial music from around the globe and the natural elements. Earth, wind, fire and water. By the profound simplicity of our being and the divine connection we all have to each other. Inlakesh! (I am another yourself)
Inlakesh formed in 1990 through the alchemy of Tanya Gerard and Rob Thomas, the core creatives of the group. Although Tanya grew up in Australia, she began playing the didjeridoo while visiting Tibetan communities in Dharamsala, North India during the mid 1980's. Based on the response of Tibetan Monks she encountered, we believe this was the first time the didjeridoo had visited the Dharamsala area. She has developed a warm, feminine style of intricately woven rythms and resonant patterns with the didjeridoo and creates many of the atmospheres of Inlakesh based on her extensive travels throughout the world. Rob was born in the United States and began playing didjeridoo more than 20 years ago while living in Australia. His passion for the instrument, obsession for trance along with creative use of breath and voice, has resulted in a unique style of sound and rhythm. Together they have introduced thousands to the magic of didjeridoo. Sharing their warm, resonant sound currents throughout the United States. Rob & Tanya Currently reside in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
