Sax-, Flute- and Bansuri- player Praful is a native German who chose Amsterdam as his home base in the late 80’s. Over the last 2 decades he has immersed himself in Jazz, Dance, TripHop, Latin and West African Music and especially in the musical cultures of Brazil and India. He has recorded and shared the stage with numerous artists and bands: Project 2000, Bayuba Cante, Société ­ tous les Couleurs, Dave Koz, Gerardo Rosales, ElectroCôco, Lilian Vieira (Zuco103), Jonathan Butler, Maneesh de Moor, Deva Premal and Miten, Marc Antoine, Nippy Noya, Armando Peraza, Ravi, Jazzjuice, Good Move, Hardsoul, DJ Maestro and many more.

Launched in the USA on Dave Koz’s label Rendezvous Entertainment from LA, Praful was embraced as “Jazz Debut artist of the year 2003” (The Wave, LA) and “The breath of fresh air in America’s Contemporary Jazz”. The album stayed on the US American Billboard chart for 70 weeks, scored a #1 radio hit with the first US single ‘SIGH’ and sold more than 100.000 copies worldwide. Developing further his warm and original crossover between Jazz, Electronica and WorldMusic, Praful released ‘Pyramid in your Backyard’ in 2005.
