Adil Manuel spearhead a collaborative outfit based out of New Delhi. Their musical spectrum spans Jazz Fusion, Funk, RnB, Blues and Gospel. Extensively working with artists based in India and abroad, their focus has been the creation of new sounds and energies through collaboration, exchange and cross-influence.
Their summers are generally spent touring and playing at international music festivals like the Festival Tout Le Monde Chante (TLMC) in Villefranche de Rouergue (France), Festival Corne d'Or in Istanbul (Turkey), Centre Mandapa in Paris (France), Clef d'Or in Plovdiv (Bulgaria) etc. In a couple of these festivals they have been the first artists from India to be invited.
With a large bi-lingual repertoire of standards and original compositions, their shows have a mix of songs in French and English.
In addition to their collaborations with numerous well known solo artists and bands in Delhi, they have worked with musicians from Turkey, France, Spain, Germany, Bulgaria, Italy, Argentina, Brunei, the Reunion Islands, the USA and counting.
With their varied influences and an ever-evolving sound the members of Adil Manuel collective continue to experiment and record extensively. Their EP was released in June 2010 and the debut album is already in the making.
