Sanjay Divecha

Sanjay Divecha is a guitar player and composer based in Mumbai, India. His current band, Secret attempts to blur the lines between the great Indian traditions; Hindustani and Carnatic, and jazz with a strong focus on collective improvisation and a soulful message.  An intrepid traveler on a long journey filled with experiences, Sanjay's quest has brought him face to face with legends, visionaries and doyens.  In a cross cultural diorama of global music, Sanjay has striven to explore his love for jazz, folk, African, American and Latin music while distinctly paying homage to his Indian roots.  Sanjay was also invited by Zakir Hussain to participate in the 2015 CROSS CURRENTS tour that spanned ten cities in the United States

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
