He underwent rigorous classical music training under the tutelage of Fr Thomas Chakkalamattath for almost 7 years and he now holds an ATCL degree from Trinity College of Music, London.

Frijo has keen interest in funk and progressive instrumental music with the essence of Indian Classical and contemporary style. His musical notes are always a result of extensive experiments.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
