1. Paris, France
It all started with a trip to India which inspired Raphael Cornet (guitar/vocals) and Kenzo Zurzolo to actualize their dreams and follow the musical footsteps of Ray Charles, The Roots, and Finley Quaye. Soon after, Octavio Angarita (cello), Benoit Dordolo (bass), and Reda Samba (drums) joined the Parisian formation. Namasté; a consciously playful fusion of rock, reggae, and jazz, aligned with lyrical elements of hip-hop and soul melodies, introduces a dynamic, coherent, and altogether innovative and inspired musical ensemble.
2)Namaste are also four sensitive young metrosexual men from Croydon/London who together form an almighty alliance simply named Namaste (nom-uh-stay). In the last year Namaste have been signed to an Austrian Independent label called Crater8Records and have recently finished recording their debut album Outside is Endless which is now available for purchase. The band are currently rehearsing and residing in the beautiful city of Vienna.
