Kimochi Youkai are 5 Mumbai-based musicians with a single minded focus – to make people feel good through their music, working together to create their own unique ambient vibe of groovy happiness. Kimochi Youkai consists of Nirvan Pareva (Drums), Niranjan Joshi (Keys), Bishan Pukhranbam (Guitar), Vishal Singh (Bass), Ambika Nayak (Vocals). They each bring their expertise and style of training from modern jazz to funk to neo-soul to create a unique blend of seemingly euphoric music. Kimochi Youkai finds their inspiration from their Japanese manga obsessions, moving from being a cover band to a band that makes their own original music and more. This band presents some very smooth vocals, percussive guitar parts, a solid groove and a silky keyboard solo.
