AVATAR (article first published : 2007-12-4)

Avatar, the album, has been a long time coming. It takes its name from the band which has evolved out of the process of family growth. Steve Fataar's collaboration with local musicians, was suddenly brightened by an addition to the stage when Tara, his daughter turned eight. Tara has just turned 25, and most of the songs of the album are her compositions. Tara's brother Dain has also written and performed on many tracks on the album.

The recording process had its inception five years ago in a Cape Town studio and has since moved home to Durban again for its closing paragraphs.

A lot of the songs are familiar, played regularly at live performances but expect a range of songs not heard up until now. More information from Avatar on 074 181 2665.
