Founded in 2006 in Ann Arbor, MI by tabla player John Churchville, Sumkali released 4 albums and performed hundreds of events all over the USA. Through the years, the musicians in the group were ever changing, depending on the gig. More than 20 musicians have performed and/or recorded as the Sumkali group. At the center of this endeavor was always the desire to bring people together to make great music. Since the Pandemic of 2020, Sumkali has stopped performing and recording.
You can still listen to the music that was created over our 15 year stint and send us a message, but we are no longer taking dates. Thank you to everyone who supported the group over the years and thank you to all the musicians that came together to bring this music to the world.
