Event Description : MUSIC : The Shonai Collective ft. Dan, Jigmee & Divakar
The Shonai Collective is a project which is basically a collaboration with different musicians. Shonai, had started the journey of this collective in 2016 as a trio with he himself on Piano and two very talented musicians from Kolkata, Premjit Dutta (Drums) and Aakash Ganguly (Bass).  
The first project saw them releasing two of their own compositions in a compilation album (FOXTROT V2) with a few selective bands playing original improvised music. This collective had a successful album launch tour across the country and their tunes were well received everywhere.  
In 2017 they did a series of gigs in Delhi as a quintet with two very efficient horn players Rie Ona (alto and tenor) and Fabio Carlucci (trumpet). They also took part in a Jazz festival called GIANTS OF JAZZ. The idea of this project of collaborating with various artists from different places and performing together continued when Shonai shifted his base to Delhi. This time he has collaborated with three other very talented musicians to continue his journey with his collective. They are Sofia Hoffmann (voice), Ekaterina Aristova (upright bass) and Aditya Dutta (drums).
The sound can be best described as a mix of groovy funk, traditional jazz, blues and pop. Apart from their own compositions they cover a few Bebop, Jazz standards and a few popular tunes too. This collective has developed its unique sound and it can be found in the arrangement of their compositions and rearrangement of the popular tunes they cover.
