Mike Tamburo

Mike Tamburo is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, music facilitator, interdisciplinary sound and recording artist, video artist, sound therapist, writer, meditation teacher and avid traveler. Tamburo gained early notoriety for his playing and composing on string instruments (hammered dulcimer, guitar and shahi baaja). In many of his early performances he began to enter into altered states of consciousness and have out of body experiences while performing. In order to understand and hone these experiences he went into years of self study; exploring Kundalini Yoga, energy work, the therapeutic use of sound and how sound impacts consciousness, human perception and self healing. His love for long sustained drones, overtones and psycho-acoustics led him to working with multiple gongs and other tuned metal instruments (bell plates, singing bowls) in composition, improvisation and most recently as Gong course designer and Gong workshop facilitator.
