1. ShwetaSandeep Boniface has been an integral part of the music programme at the Canadian International School (CIS) for over a decade. He is an accomplished musician who has shared his talent generously with the school community. The student choir, ‘Angel Flakes’, came into existence at Sandeep’s behest and the Angel Flakes choir is now considered amongst the best student choirs in Bangalore city! Students admire Sandeep and absolutely enjoy his music lessons at CIS.

Sandeep is the lead singer of his band, Chromatix, which has performed at CIS on two occasions. Both times, the audience had a great time and was very appreciative of the band’s performance.

He has made all of us at CIS very proud!

Sandeep’s passion and skill is made evident when you listen and watch him play. His hands skilfully utilise the full possibility of the keyboard eliciting a passionate, but tender sound as he plays. His vocal quality is smooth and melodic. Possessing both these qualities makes Sandeep a gifted musician, and an honour for the audience to experience.

3. George I have known Sandeep since the mid 90s when our bands would share the same stage at various concerts across Bangalore, the city we grew up in India. His unique voice, his dramatic performances and his zealous passion for music sets him apart from most musicians. My most vivid memory was his performance of ‘November Rain’ with his band at the National Law college. Over the years, although living in different countries, we have kept in touch via social media, supporting each other’s music.

I have always have been an ardent fan of Sandeep’s music and am impressed by the fantastic songs he produces with the children he coaches. His unique voice, heartfelt compositions and moving piano performance has been his strength and means by which he keeps us captivated.

I always look forward to his next musical endeavour and hope to collaborate with him some day soon.

4. NiranjanaSandeep rules the rasp! His tone will strike you, no doubt as wild, unencumbered and inimitable as he narrates his stories in a canyonesque way. Like many musicians Sandeep admires and infers, he too has dedicated his life to the thoughtful practice of music towards humanitarianism. His music is enthralling not just because it is Sandeep’s but also because it is deep and therefore unifying.

John Lennon is quoted to have said, “All you need is love”. I add to that and say, “and Sandeep’s music”.

Bon Chance mon ami.

5. AllanIt has been my privilege to know, record with, and perform live with Sandeep Boniface. When I first met Sandeep I was immediately drawn in by his musicality as a performer and soon came to know him as an accomplished composer and music educator. His melodies are the type you hear then soon find yourself humming over and over throughout the day.  His harmonic awareness and contrapuntal lines bring the music to life while each subsequent listen reveals something new that perhaps you missed the time before, however, the part of his music that rises above the rest is his lyrics and how relevant the words are to the world today.  His messages are very clear and show the inner soul of Sandeep as a world citizen who cares deeply about others.  He speaks musically in a very positive way and strives for positive changes in all of us. His music will change you if you allow it and as always it reflects what we should be.

Sandeep has a remarkably wide vocal range which he uses effectively and has great control over.

His ability to play various styles on the keyboard – from rag time, classical, to shredding rock solos, makes him a really diverse keyboard player.

Put these great qualities into a blender, add great composing skills driven by melody, and you have one extraordinarily talented and musically gifted individual.

10. SandeshSandeep thinks a lot.
He marinates his songs in his mind before it reaches the ear of the beholder.
His voice has an unique flawlessness that conveys.
He has his own idea about the way things should be, which makes it original.
May God bless all his endeavours.
Let the songs from his side reach out and bring solace to mankind.
