7th May 2016, Saturday
Gyaan Adab and its audience experienced an evening of rich eclectic music on Saturday, the 7th of May with THE TAPI PROJECT!
The Tapi Project is Yogi and people he came across during different phases of his musical exploration, who have come together to form one act. The band focuses more on the tones and soundscapes while retaining melody.
They are now on the threshold of releasing a new album and setting off on a nationwide tour. The nine songs from their debut album all belong to different times and spaces, and the only common characteristic in them is that of the band’s idea of exploration of the unknown.
