Musicians and co-producers Ankur Bulsara and Peter D. Gerakaris brought their musical vision to life during the summer of 2008 after a series of recording sessions in Beverly Hills.
Coo Gua quickly grew into an international, electro-acoustic hybrid that focuses predominantly on studio projects and unites performers from NYC and LA to Taipei. The sound has been described by some as “electronic post-lounge jazz music with a Chinese twist”.
Drummer Ankur Bulsara holds down the distinct, driving rhythm section, while guitarist and co-producer Peter D. Gerakaris handles all compositions and arrangements. Meanwhile, Ms. Lin Ming-Chu lends sultry Mandarin spoken-word samples. Their lush sound simultaneously deploys multi-instrumentalists, such as Dr. Kimo Johnson, not to mention audio-guru-mixer Charles Geogehegan and engineering whiz Adam Lasus.
Their current self-titled debut EP is now available on iTunes, Amazon MP3 and Amazon CD. More information is available at: www.coogua.com
