Carlos Michael has spent many years in India, where he studied tabla with Tarun Banerjee. He discovered crystal singing bowls through his profession as a body worker. From the first few bowls that he used on clients' bodies, his collection expanded, and he began offering regular concerts. Carlos has developed unique mallets for bowl playing, and this has expanded to special mallets for the waveharps, an instrument that is a cross between zither and hammer dulcimer. Whether he's playing bowls, waveharps, or tabla/udu, Carlos has a unique, spontaneous way of making music that doesn't follow expected norms...this is more than music. When not on the road, Carlos is living in Berlin.
