SES plays original compositions, improvisations and arrangements that bridge Indian and Western musical cultures. Their extraordinary performances blend elements of jazz, Indian classical music and western contemporary concert music that is inspirational for both musicians and non-musicians alike. SES began with a collaboration between Bill Koehler (double bassist) and Manpreet Bedi (tablist) in 2002 when they formed Vandana and recorded Journey2gether as a duo. In 2009 the duo expanded to a quartet with the addition of David Vayo (keyboards) and Bob McEntyre (drums) forming the Sonic Exploration Society. The virtuosity of all the musicians in astonishing whether performing as a duo, trio or quartet.
