Their house and music studio and all contents inside have been completely wiped out and lost. Luckily, they are physically ok and managed to escape with only their instruments and their dog, Tabla, just in the nick of time.
This house meant more to them than shelter... They were able to use all of their inheritance from their grandparents to buy it outright and build a music production studio. This allowed them to continue their profession as full-time musicians with their band TAARKA, teach lessons and produce music for other bands.
Unfortunately, they did not have flood insurance and their homeowner's policy is not going to cover their losses. On top of that, the land where their house sits could be deemed "unbuildable" so it is possible they will not be able to rebuild on the land they own.
While David and Enion have been dealing with this ordeal, they have also lost significant income they would have earned playing gigs, teaching and producing music which would have helped carry them through the slower winter months.
As musicians, they have no extra money, no savings and literally live gig to gig to keep afloat. They are wiped out.
This fund will help David, Enion and Aesop rebuild, in whatever shape that takes, and help get them through the upcoming months.
To read more about their story, check out David's Facebook page where he has documented it well with photos and day to day accounts.
If you don't want to donate cash, another way to help is by supporting the band by buying TAARKA tracks and albums from Amazon.
Thank you for any support you can give - whether a donation, a share, a thought or prayer. It all helps in making their lives better after this horrible disaster.
