Mazumdar is missing the whole point. A life spent growing up in North Africa, UK, India and Germany. A head thinking in four different languages. And a musical background spent with musicians who would never share a stage together. In the past decade he has toured international Jazz-Fesivals in Asia and Europe, played for 14 million viewers on National TV with Grammy Winner Nelly Furtado, had a working band with LA Be-bop trumpeter Gary Barone (Frank Zappa/Buddy Rich etc.), toured with master Tabalchi Tanmoy Bose (Ravi Shankar/Anouschka Shankar), California Jazz-Rock Guitarist Willie O Teri, composed a Film-Soundtrack for critically acclaimed German Independent film, co-produced and performed a theater soundtrack for the FIFA Cup 2006 among others. He is mentioned in India's first official Anthology of Indian Electronic Artists (HUB-Indian ELectronica Yearbook Project) and has been referred to as the only Germany-based representative of Indian Electronic music. And most of this while graduating degrees in Jazz Piano Performance and Production/Songwriting/Music Business simultaneously and maintaining an active and down-to-earth working-musicians lifestyle between Europe and India. T.L.'s Debut Album '4 Walls V2' was released in 2010.
A completely DIY effort written and produced alone in a bed-room studio with T.L. on all instruments except Drums. '' I've always searched for common thread among seemingly different worlds. I've been called Jazz-pianist, Singer-Songwriter, Elektro-Head, Producer, Experimental-World-Music musician and many other 'boxes'. But all I'm really trying to do when I write my music is to get two odd companions to meet.
The dreamer who wants to sing for people with a battered guitar and the nerd who'll always be a student of music. And both are me.'' T.L. is currently working on his sophomore album and Touring/Recording in Europe and India. Read more on Last.fm.
