Description

Each a giant in their respective spheres, the three members of Chingari - mandolin player U. Srinivas, bassist Etienne Mbappe and drummer Ranjit Barot - have joined forces to explore an unprecedented synthesis of international traditions on their debut album 'Bombay Makossa'.

'Bombay Makossa' fuses the rhythmic intricacy and improvisational fervour of South Indian Carnatic music with the infectious buoyancy of Cameroonian sounds, bridged by a shared love of jazz, second-line funk, and the shimmering textures and grooves of modern pop.

Only three master musicians could make such an audacious hybrid sound as fluid and organic as 'Bombay Makossa', and they are the members of Chingari.

Personnel: U. Shrinivas (electric mandolin), Etienne Mbappe (bass, vocals), Ranjit Barot (drums, vocals)
