The Usmani Collective


Hard to categorise but great to listen to, The Usmani Collective forges the talents of its four members to form a unique style of music. Although bordering on many influences and styles, the sound the band produces is cohesive and original.

Adam Usmani's songs reflect his life and experiences without the compromise of fitting into a single genre of music. With influences from Beethoven to Nirvana and combined with great singing, a formidable piano technique and effective guitar playing, his unique style of songwriting creates the thread that defines 'Usmani'.

After hearing Coralie play the violin, Adam invited her to do some recordings with him, this resulted in late night jam sessions, love songs, a recording, and... getting married! Coralie is studying the violin at Auckland University and doing regular work as a musician and violin teacher. Her style of playing and versatility complements Adams' voice and songs.

Yair Katz began jamming with Adam and Coralie in 2005 after meeting at a friends house. An accomplished drummer and percussionist, Yair has played with many bands and performed at festivals throughout New Zealand. He brings another flavour to the band with his Isreali background and natural flair for rhythm.

Ross Larsen is a bass player by trade, he plays with numerous bands around Auckland and has recently completed studying his instrument at Auckland University. His natural knack for finding the right bassline is indispensable, and the foundation he creates gives support to the rest of the band.

Band Members:
Adam Usmani (guitar, piano, vocals)
Ross Larsen (bass)
Yair Katz (drums, percussion)
Coralie Usmani (violin)
