We are a Latin/Latin Jazz band. The music we play ranges from original compositions to Latin and Jazz standards, contemporary jazz to jazz rock. From Coltrane to Weather Report, from Autumn Leaves to Santana, we love playing it all. The idiom is Latin, but the canvas is wide open. We have our own sound, and we are the only ones in the country doing what we are doing.
Orient Express has been the one guy's dream. He's the leader and the mentor- Mr. Monojit Datta. An authority on Latin percussion, he has hand-picked the musicians himself.
