At-Tambur joins violin, drumsets, hurdy-gurdy, acoustic guitar, flutes, double bass, voice and concertina creating tunes some real other imagined, some originals and some from tradicional culture.

Togheter since 1999, At-Tambur dedicated inicialy to give life to balls around eruopean folk dances - where the audience danced in rithm of the music learning and teaching several steps from various old tradicional dances.

Now it's presented a record inspired on portuguese and other roots; influenced by classical, ancient and jazz music, thru the creation and choice of chalenging repertoire in it's interpretation, arrangement and the gathering of it all...
