A small addition by Walt Nektroid taken from the old forum:

2004 saw the departure of various band members to persue other interests and projects including Jonathan's "Panic Room" and Anne-Marie's solo career. An era drew to a close.

A chance meeting with keyboard player Gonzalo Carrera, considered by many to be one of the finest keyboard players working in the UK today, culminated in a series of writing sessions in London and Swansea. Gonzalo will be known to many of you through his work with David O'List (The Nice), John Helliwell (Supertramp), Glen Cornick (Jethro Tull) and Landmarq.

Soon two became four - we were joined by superb drummer Bob Dalton and virtuoso rock guitarist Nick May, both of whom need little introduction. Bob is well known as the drummer with It Bites and has recently toured with Kino. Nick was guitarist with The Enid and has worked with various other bands including Jadis. Nick has just released his debut solo album 'Whimwise' .

Four became five when we were introduced to the wonderful Mexican vocalist, composer and synthesist Alquimia. Singing in various languages such as Spanish, English, French and her native idiom Nahuatl, Alquimia has released several albums and collaborated and performed with many other artists such as Michael Nyman, Jah Wobble and Hans Joachim Roedelius.

There is an incredible synergy within the band allowing us to create exciting new music which is simply 'classic Karnataka'.

A new era has begun!"

2003 - Delicate Flame Of Desire

'This much anticipated new release begins an ambitious new chapter that makes for a compelling listening experience. Sensual, spiritual and unrestrained by musical boundaries, the dramatic, multi-layered arrangements combine with haunting vocal melodies to create a powerful and epic work where panoramic soundscapes give way to fragile moments of acoustic intimacy. From the evolving intensity of Heart Of Stone to the desolate imagery of Out Of Reach, this is an album which embraces the agony and ecstasy of the delicate flame of desire.'

For their new studio album 'Delicate Flame Of Desire', Karnataka teamed up with highly regarded Warner/Chappell producer Steve Evans and engineer Joe Gibb (whose work includes Catatonia's ' International Velvet' and Leftfield's 'Leftism') to create an outstanding work of exceptionally strong, melodic songs with dynamic and evocative symphonic arrangements set against a highly polished production.

A short Bio by Melo the Prog Goddess taken from the old forum:

Formed in the late 1990s, Karnataka have emerged as one of the UK's most innovative new rock bands. Unrestrained by musical boundaries, the dramatic, multi-layered soundscapes created by the band combine with haunting vocal melodies to take the listener on an inspirational journey.

The band's first two albums ('Karnataka' 1998, 'The Storm' 2000) have attracted a growing worldwide audience and gained considerable attention from all aspects of the music media, including radio, magazine and internet features in Europe, Asia and the Americas. In the UK Karnataka have received the recognition they deserve with Best New Band (2000) and Best Female Vocalist (Rachel Jones for an unprecedented 3 years running in 2000, 2001 & 2002) awards from the Classic Rock Society. 'The Storm' was featured as Album Of The Week on BBC Radio Wales and has received repeated airplay on the Bob Harris Radio 2 show.

Karnataka have built up a reputation as an outstanding live band and they continue to bring their music to a wider audience with constant touring in the UK and abroad. Their performances continue to garner rave reviews - the band received the Classic Rock Society's Gig Of The Year award for 2001.

Their extensive touring has included prestigious European concerts with Porcupine Tree and culminated in the release of their live DVD " Karnataka - Live in Concert ", filmed at London's Mean Fiddler and premiered at Planet Hollywood in the capital's West End. The band have recently performed in the USA at an acoustic concert in Manhattan and also at the Patriots Theatre in New Jersey at The Classic Rock Festival. The latter concert was filmed for release in 2003 on DVD.

Tangaudimax - The Tangerine Dream Sound Museum is a project by Bianca Froese-Acquaye in loving memory of her husband Edgar Froese who sadly “changed his cosmic address” (as he would name it himself) on 20 January 2015 in Vienna.

The sound museum will be set up in memory of the unique achievements of Edgar Froese’s electronic band Tangerine Dream within the musical world, especially in Europe and North America – the band made musical history.

More information and details will follow together with the simultaneous development of this project. Please stay tuned:

2014 - 2015 Cleopatra- The Crown of Isis

After a period of over two years preparing and recording the new rock opera is finally released. The double album (the band's third within ten years time!) is financed partly by a crowdfunding campaign. Kayak allows fans to participate and invest in the new production, and in return band members are involved in special actions, like a unique semi-acoustic concert for an audience of 50, the possibility to get one's name in the liner notes of the album booklet, or getting the album delivered at home by Ton and Irene. The CD features several guest vocalists: Martin van der Starre, Alexander van Breemen, Marjolein Teepen (who had been part of the Nostradamus-cast in 2005) and Greek singer Tatiana Manolidou.
To everyone's suprise singers Cindy Oudshoorn and Edward Reekers announce that they will leave Kayak after the last gig in 2014. The news comes only a few weeks before the release and upcoming club tour. Though their decision will obviously have quite an impact on the band's future, Ton Scherpenzeel makes it clear that it does not mean Kayak will call it a day as well, but mentions no concrete plans to present a new line up any time soon.
In regards to developing 'Cleopatra- The Crown of Isis' as a spectacle to theaters or special events in the new year it will not make a big difference: for Cindy and Edward's respective roles as Cleopatra and The Sicilian replacements will be found.
In March 2015 Kayak (Ton Scherpenzeel, Rob Vunderink, Joost Vergoossen, Jan van Olffen and Sjoerd Rutten, replacing Hans Eijkenaar) & Guests (with Marjolein Teepen and Rolf Koster replacing Cindy and Edward) perform the rock opera at a special outside event on the Dutch island of Texel for a crowd of 1500 people that endure the cold and windy weather to watch and listen to this unique show. The band and guests are joined by a regional choir and two dancers, and the story itself is enhanced by video images that were especially made for the show.
