ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Monsoon’s Mandala is an inspiring mosaic of global vibrations that will take you on a beautiful discovery within. The album 'Mandala' is an immersive experience, a vehicle to help transport you to a different state of mind; close your eyes and see where the music will take you. Each and every song is inspired by different aspects of Nature and evokes a unique feeling. We hope there is something in this album for everyone. We fundamentally believe that music is not only the universal language but also a powerful tool to help us find our true inner self and unite us together as one.

Monsoon is an Indo-Jazz collective whose music combines elements of creative Jazz with traditional Indian Classical music to produce a rich and meaningful cross-cultural expression. Their elegant synthesis of penetrating Indian Ragas with creative Western expression has earned them International critical acclaim as innovators of the Indo-Jazz genre. Captivating audiences with memorable original compositions, and creative improvisation, Monsoon creates a truly unique, and vivid musical experience.

Monsoon features some of Canada’s most respected and versatile young musicians who have traveled the globe in search of a multi-cultural synthesis of musical expression. L-R: George Koller (Producer) • Jeremy Darby (Recording Engineer) • Todd Pentney (Keyboards) • Justin Gray (Electric and Acoustic Basses) • Jonathan and Andrew Kay (Saxophones & Winds) • Ravi Naimpally (Tabla & Udu) • Adam Teixeira (Drums and Cymbals) • Derek Gray (Drums & Percussion)

The band Monsoon has been the vehicle for our expression and features some of Canada's most talented young musicians. The saxophone brothers of Jonathan Kay and Andrew Kay fill the air with bird calls and breathes of melodies; Justin Gray grooves deep in the cavernous bass realm; Ravi Naimpally brings a genius pitter patter of a rainstorm; Adam Teixeira drums the pulsating prowl of a hunting tiger; Todd Pentney flies across the keys of the piano, rhodes, and B3 organ; and Derek Gray evokes the percussive dancing of African tribes.



" Young virtuoso musicians creating true East-West vibrations for the heart, mind, and soul"

George Koller, Producer - Toronto, Canada



"Upon first listening to Mandala, it's evident that all the members of Monsoon have devoted themselves to the crossing of jazz with Indian classical music. One cannot play or compose this kind of music without serious devotion to each genre. I admire the members for their contributions to this ever expanding hybrid and I'm sure audiences will be moved by the group's musical approach the same way I have been."

Rez Abbasi - Harlem, New York
