Profile Information

About me:
Anthar Kharana, is a composer and multi-instrumentalist born in a small town called Ocana in the North of Colombia and years later he moved to Bogota. He grew up in a musical family and his first link with music was at the age of nine. He has been involved in many musical projects and bands, offering him a wide vision about different ways of putting together sounds and intentions, feelings and thoughts. Starting with rough punk in his early years as a result of the oppressive political situation in Colombia, to then begin training himself as a counter-tenor (highest male voice’s pitch in opera) afterwards, giving him the ability to increase his voice range and to reach high pitches that sounds like female voice.

After years of practice he developed the complex technique of Throat Singing, including Khoomii from Mongolia also known as Polyphonic Voice, and other overtone styles incluiding western harmonics which made an important step whilst working with Vibrational Sound Healing. As part of that process, together with his passion for different ancient cultures, he started to investigate about the power of sound and how it generates changes in many different ways and levels of conciousness.

Anthar is also an educator and has been touring the UK facilitating Traditional Colombian drumming and Tribal Voice workshops in different festivals and schools. He teaches and shares the roots of Colombian traditions and rhythms of the Indigenous people who were living (and still) on the Carribbean Coast of Colombia and got mixed with African slaves brought with the Spanish colony at the end of the 16th century.

hi anthar,
thank you for comment. may be you hit the nail on the head. those pieces are very slowly therefore time stretching toys. (i'm attracted by gradualness, not only in music. it's my island.) thank you for your music. makes me feel your country. greetings from far.

Dear Anthar,
Don't worry about that . I shall not free the period you perform at Hyde Park . I shall be in the Reunion Island then in the United States in November and December 2008.
Thank you for thinking of me .
Tran Quang Hai
