THE TAPI PROJECT
The Tapi Project comprises Yogendra Saniyawala (acoustic & bass guitar, lyrics, composition), Swati Minaxi (voice), Gaurav Kapadia (drums) and Biju Nambiar (keyboards, bass and drums). Their music is a continuous revival and re-telling of stories and themes that make up modern India, held together by remarkably compelling songwriting and compositions that are simple and accessible. Their music straddles the world of folk, jazz, rock and weaves in layers of musical styles that the band is influenced by. Following the release of their eponymous album in 2015, The Tapi Project did their debut tour in Europe in 2016. This was followed by 3 more tours until 2022, covering over 30 countries across the UK and Europe and parts of SouthEast Asia. They have also been featured on prominent print and radio platforms such as The Songlines Magazine (UK), BBC Radio, Serbian National Newspaper and Hong Kong National Radio. During their India tour in 2022, they played at major festivals and venues such as Mahindra Kabira Festival, SOWS Festival, World Sacred Music Festival, Gujarat Literature Festival, MTV Sessions, Windmills Craftworks and Abhivyakti Festival.
