Little Strike
Little Strike
Little Strike is the alias of Israeli musician / producer Tamar Dart, based currently in Philadelphia. With roots in folk, electronic, and world music, the project feels like a collage of eclectic beats, playful guitars, and pointed vocals. The listener is encouraged to go on a nostalgic walkabout around the world with lyrics in English, Hebrew, Spanish, French & Wolof, reflecting Dart’s deep love of languages and her own personal mixed heritage.
At the age of 15 Tamar, along with her family, decided to relocate from Israel to Miami due to the family's growing opposing political views. After graduating with a BFA in multimedia arts, Dart traded the US for East Asia, where she traveled and worked in China, Thailand, and Nepal for a year. For Tamar this trip exposed dual realities: one of brutal poverty and human suffering, and the other of the astounding resilience of both people and nature. This inspired purpose in her and pushed her to pursue music as a means of giving voice to these dualities: to pain and pleasure, to life and death. In turn her lyrics often act as hopeful mantras co-existing alongside a painful reality.
She has performed in various countries including Ecuador, Thailand, India and across the US. The live show features vocals, sampler, guitar, loops, bass, & Koof Ibi Umoren on flugelhorn and loops.

Play On Philly Presents
Play On Philly {www.playonphilly.org/} is an innovative education and social initiative that provides opportunities for personal development to children through the study of music. Inspired by the social development and music education program of Venezuela called El Sistema, Play On Philly seeks to enrich the lives of Philadelphia youth by providing daily musical instruction in communities that have little access to music education. Play On Philly's intensive music education programs are offered year-round for grades K-12, at school-based music centers, through high school programs such as POP Academy, and with the POP Symphony Orchestra, the elite flagship orchestra for the organization, which represents Play On Philly at major events throughout the city and beyond.
