Tash Sultana, a newfound global sensation, just performed her grandest North American headlining show to date at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre. Tash’s performance featured her immense instrumental talent and world-class looping and electronic skills. This show at Red Rocks was live recorded to be further featured in a behind-the-scenes look at Tash’s musical career. Last night’s stop of the “Flow State Word Tour,” is backed by the supported album, and features future stops in California, South Africa, New Zealand and ending in her home-country Australia.
The night began with the extended line of cars reaching down to the highway from the top of the Amphitheatre. Thousands of fans came together in the fall weather and brisk wind to crowd together to see Tash Sultana, some for the first time, and others who sported merchandise from previous stops on tour. The rows and seats were overflowing as Tash’s Sold Out Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre show began.
The Tesky Brothers ignited the night with their high-energy performance, capitalizing on their latest album, and highlighting songs, from “Run Home Slow.” Their smooth vocals and tranquil rhythms pointed the way to a night of monumental music.
When all the lights blackened and Tash Sultana’s silhouette appeared on stage, light scales of her caressing the guitar began. She began with soft vocals, flashing a bright smile to the crowd and singing lyrics “Love, I’m Coming Home To You.” Soon enough her powerful vocals were ringing throughout the Amphitheatre, exciting all the fans that traveled so far to see her.
Tash continued with a funky groove and deep basslines. Tash was mobile throughout the whole night, continually crossing the stage and coming back to the centerpiece that was risen in the middle of the stage. Her light-up rainbow and flamingo were the perfect iridescent glow to draw attendee’s attention to center-stage. Her layering and looping of tracks continued to build into a far-out and sensational melody.
Glitter lights shone throughout the crowd as Tash respectfully showed off her multi-instrumental skills, keeping the crowd entertained and swaying to the rhythm. Both Tash's and the crowds’ energy were flourishing simultaneously throughout the night, completely intertwining smiles, energy, and talent as the music continued.
Tash led into the next song heavily playing the trumpet, shooting brass notes throughout the Amphitheatre, as the crowd resonated with the sound. She added layers of keys and percussion to finalize the harmony, all while continuing a progressive beat on the electronic drum pad. She continued with a heavy rock guitar solo with electric undertones.
At one point, Tash got down on her knees for a shredding guitar solo then threw the guitar on the ground and ran to the rest of her instruments to continue the instrumental electronic looping. The sequence ending with iridescent and vibey melodies for attendees to relish in all the feels of the night.
As the music continued, it seemed as if each note was adding on to a whole bigger picture of sound for the night. Everything was perfectly placed and matched to the crowd’s energy.
Tash then played crowd favorite, “Mystic” leading with the trumpet and excelling intensity as the song continued. The lights and noise occasionally erupted into a full-on disco party throughout the night, shining colors of the rainbow all throughout the crowd. As energy was building, Tash even ran into the crowd to play right next to fans on the ride side of the Amphitheatre.
Sensual grooves continued throughout the night as we reached the half-way point of the show. Tash came forward and spoke to the audience for the first time, asking how they were doing, explaining that this was all live-recorded and even shared a personal memoir to inspire the crowd to chase their dreams. Tash mentioned how she noticed at all shows across the world; this was becoming a safe place for all genders, ages, sexuality, and race.
The second part of the night continued with an acoustic and gentler style, letting the crowd go on a wild sensual sound exploration. Tash even showcased her beat-boxing skills, leaving the crowd in awe. Tash ended the set with crowd favorite “Jungle” and encored with a beautiful version of “Blackbird” to capitalize on a fantastic night at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre.
The overall uniqueness and power that came through Tash Sultana’s femininity and voice left the crowd with respect and awe as they saw a movement sequencing through this progressive sound and culture.
