Colin D�Cruz began playing music professionally on resident band contracts with some of the finest hotels in India. Ten years of six nights a week gigs laid the foundation for a long and chequered career in music. He preferred working with different bands performing different styles of music and today he is one of the few bassplayers around, who has played just about every genre of music with just about every musician on the local circuit. He also performed internationally on resident contracts in the middle-east and Australia including a whole lot of worldwide concerts with local stars like Asha Bhosle, Sonu Nigam, Mehnaz, Shubha Mudgal, Apache Indian, Roop Kumar Rathod, Sunali Rathod, and Remo Fernandes to name a few. His most recent international assignment was a four country Asia-Pacific tour for Hennessy with a jazz ensemble called �Soul Yatra�. His most significant project so far is an indo-jazz fusion ensemble he put together called �The Brown Indian Band�. This band has some accomplished Indian classical musicians getting together with local jazz virtuosos to produce a very funky sound of indo-jazz fusion. The band performs original material most of which is composed by Colin. His open mind and open ears towards evolving forms of rhythm, melody and harmony coupled with a �best is yet to come� philosophy, has seen him through almost three eventful decades of live performance. The Brown Indian Band has been signed on by Raga to Rock records who will release the band's debut album internationally.
