Virtuoso British-Asian bass player Shez Raja formed his London-based Collective with the vision of creating exciting and evocative music - a sonic kaleidoscope of Indo-jazz, thundering funk, tuneful ragas and euphoric grooves!

The Collective's live show is an eclectic headcharge of raw energy, always leaving audiences uplifted, inspired and asking for more! Following spectacular performances at top UK venues and major international jazz festivals from Russia to New Zealand, they have amassed a devoted following and forged a reputation as one of the most entertaining live acts on the scene today.
