Ophelia thrives in a live collaborative context and so formed an experimental project called PakAnimal in 2019. A unique group of four players is selected each month for a series of one-off, unrehearsed, song-creating, groove-focused, experimental shows. PakAnimal represents living in the present, being creative and challenged by making music for the sake of music-making.
Supported acts such as Pete Rock, Ice Cube, De La Soul, Pharaohe Monch, Tony Allen, Ultramagnetic MC’s, Robert Glasper, Saul Williams & Maverick Sabre.
