Debashish Bhattacharya Trio
THURSDAY 17 OCTOBER - 8:00 PM
Indian guitarist Debashish Bhattacharya brings universal appeal to his pioneering fusion of classical Indian ragas and bluesy Western music. Embracing Hawaiian slide guitar from his childhood in the 1960’s, Debashish invented a unique style of Hindustani slide guitar and has been mesmerising audiences and artists for over four decades with his unique blend of Indian ragas and Western styles.
Combining extreme virtuosity with graceful artistry, Debashish has received global acclaim, with two Grammy nominations (2002, 2009) a Songlines (2016) and BBC Award (2007), and has won the hearts of audiences around the world.
Debashish will be accompanied by talented vocalist Anandi Bhattacharya and tabla for this exquisite evening of music.
Using the centuries-old raga tradition, Bhattacharya takes the listener to a place of deep emotional expression beyond the boundaries of time. Acoustic Guitar Magazine
