Amancio D’Silva was an Indian-born jazz guitarist known for his own recordings and collaborations with other British musicians, such as Joe Harriott and Stan Tracey. He continued to perform until his health made it impossible in the mid ’90s. He also taught extensively, first at Jenako Art in London’s East End, and later at the Krishnamurti International School in Hampshire. D’Silva passed away in 1996. Konkan was his third and final solo release originally released back in 1996 on Vocalion, which receives a worthy reissue on Australia-based The Roundtable. An unofficial sequel to Dream Sequence, it further explored the uncharted possibilities of an Indian music-jazz fusion.
