ABOUT US

The Indo Blues Quartet is lead by guitarist Stephano D'Silva, a guitarist who's influenced in his playing and writing by his parent's heritage, namely Irish and Indian music, as well as jazz and rock and country.

Stephano has performed as leader playing this music at clubs such as Ronnie Scott's and the Pizza Express in Soho, as well as for the BBC, and incorporates in sets music recorded by his father Amancio D'Silva in the 60's, once again popular thanks to DJ's such Giles Peterson and Trevor Nelson.

Stephano plays alongside another fine soloist, Oli Arlotto on saxophone, in a quartet with drums and double or electric bass, occasionally a five piece.

Set lists include a mix of originals, the music of Amancio D'Silva and otehr "world" jazz tunes, for example by Ethio-jazz giant Mulatu Astatke.

The music is a mixture of emotive melodies and upbeat stomping jazz fare, laced with edgy guitar and sax unisons and solos
