Sauce is a new Australian band that brings
together the skills and creative energy of three well-known Melbourne
musicians. They deliver a new melodic and harmonic approach to traditional
tabla using multiple tablas in different keys with semi-acoustic
6 string bass and a variety of eastern and western wind instruments.

music intergrates Indian, jazz and world music elements with meandering
fat grooves and chops to burn.
