Mosquito Massala @ Zenzi Mills - inde - Mumbai - 14/11/09
The Indian winter of 2007 was the perfect breeding ground for fertile ideas from like minded individuals Viktor Furiani, Uri a.k.a Dharmesh Solanki, Kris Correya & Erwan Roy, who then decided to put the ideas into practical use and created the identity Mosquito Massala. The name, a humorous, cheesy take on of the prevailing sub tropical surroundings was actually the perfect subterfuge for a collective whose agenda was to use a dangerous hybrid of funky and psychedelic sounds and visuals influences from to urban to traditional backgrounds to create a platform for performances that encompassed the underbelly of all 3 cultures that was The U.K, India & France. *** After starting to play and experiment in India in cities like Mumbai, Hyderabad and Goa in 2007, the fortunes of the collective took a positive leap in August 2008 when they got together to tour around eastern France with a trailer , tents and electronic gadgets, playing at different outdoor events like the Woodstower Festival (Lyon) /Visual Invaderz Festival (Albertville) and ending the tour in the U.K as the warm up act for super British drum & bass collective London Elektricity (Hospital Records). On 21 May 2009, the MoM crew performed at the prestigious Les Nuits Sonores Lyon. Following which they did a series of events across France from Nimes to Paris. Press mentions for MoM has been varied from mention in the Rolling Stone/Time Out in India as well as European Music magazines like DjBroadcast in the Netherlands and a select few in France as well. MoM will be debuting in Mumbai at Zenzi Mills on the 14th of November 2009. • For more information go to : " MoM Space " = http://www.myspace.com/mosquitomassala " MoM Groupe " = http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/group.php?gid=100879190266&ref=ts"
