Thiefs is a mix of jazz, hip-hop, electronica, and spoken word that is “transcending the concept of idiom altogether.” This is the essence of 21st century jazz. A group moulded by collaboration, social reflection, and a highly skilled group of players.
Thiefs is Christophe Panzani (saxophone/electronics), Edgar Sekloka (MC) and Benoît Lugué (electric bass).
The transatlantic band from Paris and New York released Graft last year, an album hailed for its “startling mash of natural and synthetic, resonant and fractured.” An evocative odyssey, its subject matter is so pertinent in this political moment: identity, dislocation, migration and otherness.
The Indian Tour is a result of an artistic residency between this phenomenal band and two great Indian musicians Sushin Shyam and Neha Nair.
In Delhi Thiefs will be performing with Pavithra Chari, an accomplished classical and cross-genre vocalist and composer based in New Delhi.
