The album titled Khanatang parking lot bad ki Mawbynna Dewbilat (Folktales from the parking lot and Foreign Monoliths) is Tarik’s debut album and features a total of 9 songs – the result is an eccentric blend of punk and radical themes with a Khasi twist. Strongly rooted in a DIY philosophy, the members of Tarik are proud of their uncompromisingly honest approach to music because it best captures the spirit of the space they come from- Shillong. While descriptions by mainstream media have ranged from: grotesque, gutsy, rare gems, vulgar and edgy, to ridiculously profound, Tarik goes largely unaccredited (quite happily) for pioneering the advocacy of radical politics in the largely derivative music scene of Shillong.
Tarik has garnered a dedicated cult following in Shillong and elsewhere. See them live in a city near you or check them out at www.facebook.com/tarikshillong
