Tashi Dorji Interview

Tashi Dorji is a riveting improviser, whether working alone or with kindred spirits like Mette Rasmussen or Tyler Damon, on electric or acoustic guitar. His playing has a violence to it that may reflect his musical past in punk rock, but also, intermittently, a liquid lyricism that suggests at least a passing acquaintance with blues, folk and even classical traditions. He, himself, shakes such considerations off, admitting that all the sounds he’s ever heard are in there somewhere, but if he stopped to think about them and where they came from, he wouldn’t be able to play at all.
