Tic Toc combines the live looping, beat-boxing and raps of Rup Sidhu with the marimba and percussion playing of Robin Layne. Robin has followed his love of rhythm to Cuba, Guinea, Mali, and Mexico studying under master drummers and marimbists of those respective traditions. Rup is an interdisciplinary artist, specializing in vocal percussion and live looping, his sound blends the rhythms of spoken word with a dynamic range of cultural hybridity. They share a love for inspiring and empowering youth through music and have taught together for years at the Sarah McLachlan School of Music where they first met.
