nrtya & SkillBox present jazz-funk-prog-electronica outfit, Ape Echoes Live & DJ sets by Anonyms x The Hum Factory at Cafe TC : Turquoise Cottage Green Park, New Delhi on Thursday, 24th of October 2019.
Ape Echoes -
The frankensteinian brainchild of Bombay- based producers and multi-instrumentalists, Nirmit Shah (also from Nothing Anonymous) and Sid Shirodkar (also from Paraphoniks). Alternately moving through territories influenced by crossover-jazz, electronica, noise, hip-hop, prog-rock, funk, and soul, Ape Echoes forms a sonically and emotionally varied palette.
The producer pair frequently combine traditional acoustic and electronic instrumentation with more raw or experimental elements, weaving together an immersive musical narrative. After forming in early 2016, the pair was soon joined by Sahil Shah (also from The Yellow Diary) and Harshvardhan Gadhvi (also from Marshall & the Mischief, Kumail live amongst other projects).
Their debut EP, ‘Ape Machines’, was released in August 2017. Since then, they have performed in multiple cities across India such as Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune and major festivals such as Bacardi Bacardi NH7 Weekender, Magnetic Fields Festival, Echoes of Earth Festival, NEON EAST FEST and Future Theory.
