[Working Title] is David Soin Tappeser’s New Delhi based trio featuring Pianist Rythem Bansal and Bassist Sonic Shori. Embracing the intimacy and flexibility of the trio format, their game is highly interactive, collaborative, improvisation-driven – and unafraid to stray beyond tradition. David’s fresh and playful arrangements of (un-)known standards are full of surprises, interweaving hip-hop-grooves with Ethiopian harmonies, folk tunes with reggaeton. Ultimately the trio’s sounds emanate beyond genre or specificity – like a triangle: universal, each side equal and open to interpretation.
[Working Title] will tour India in early 2018 and is currently working towards an EP expected to be released later in the year.
