Sāṅkhya Octet – EP

The Sankhya Octet was founded in October 2013 by 25 year-old Guitarist and Composer Alessio Cazzetta.

The music of Sankhya combines a very broad range of styles and elements. Perhaps one could describe it best as modern, instrumental jazz with elements of Ethnic, Minimal and Groove Music.

Its atmospheres range from energetic, to spaced-out, atmospheric, orchestral, picturesque and many others. Improvistation and Composition are treated with the same importance, to create a vast musical universe full of surprises.

The Band

Elio Amberg - Tenor sax; Sebastian Strinning – Bass Clarinet; Silvan Schmid – Trumpet; Moritz Wesp – Trombone; Marie Krüttli – Piano; Lukas Traxel – Bass; Martin Perret – Drums; Alessio Cazzetta –Guitar/Composition

All of us met in Lucerne, where we continue to play music together in this and other projects!
