Tantric is an American post-grunge, rock band from Louisville, Kentucky that was founded in 1999 by Hugo Ferreira. Over the years, they have defined themselves through 8 studio albums as a groove laden, guitar rich rock band with dense vocal harmonies and infectious vocal melodies. Frontman Hugo Ferreira’s unique soulful baritone vocals, ranging from angsty rasps to melodious melancholy are a testament for the signature Tantric sound. Along with the usual intricate guitar work and infectious riffs layered over complex textures has become the hallmark of the Tantric sound. Tantric has endured for a career of 24 years, and although the band has gone through many label and lineup changes over the years, Ferreira has managed to keep the entity that is Tantric alive and well as the only original member still rocking.
“I consider Tantric a boat that I float in—it’s a vessel that carries the music. So I never feel restrictions. It doesn’t have any rules. Tantric music can be super-heavy, light–or both It’s really an open book with no ending in sight”, says Ferreira.
