The Vedantic Chapter is Masonik's remarkable debut release - the result of the meeting of Masonik co-founder, Basil Psanoudakis, with Indian musician Balvinder Singh and Jazz musician Paul 'Pax' Andrews. The group met at Freeform, the bi-monthly improvisation evening curated by KULCHA Multicultural Arts of WA.

It took another year, many performances and a crucial meeting with keyboardist Wheldon Thornley and local Indian tabla player Pranjal Bora to finally see these concepts emerge as an early form of The Vedantic Chapter.
