Oh yes, it’s another festival. The latest addition to this summer’s never-ending run of fun is the Big Bang Festival of Rhythm, which will be responsible for a barrage of noise in various Dublin city venues from July 27th to 29th.

The star attraction is Bombay tabla maestro and percussionist Trilok Gurtu, a man who has provided a dash on outings with Don Cherry, Gilberto Gil and Bill Laswell. He performs his 20 Years of Talking Tabla show at the National Concert Hall on the Saturday night.

Other acts aiming to change your way of thinking about rhythm include 15-piece Rio samba band Monobloco, top frame drummers from Ireland and Italy and a mass drum-in, Big Bang 2, in Meeting House Square featuring drummers from all over the country marshalled by Riverdance drummer Ray Fean.
