Tala is the word for rythm in Indian music, while Compàs is for rythm in flamenco. The project is mainly about new forms of electric guitar playing around the tapping, the flamenco and the Spanish guitar in general. One of the guitar players is using the 'tapping' an innovative way of playing the guitar by tapping the fingers on the strings. This way of playing is somehow similar to tabla playing, that is why a great tabla player of India joins the group.
