Musical genius, Debashish Bhattacharya is a veteran of Indian Classical sound. Having performed for the last 30 years, he is an expert at playing the lap slide guitar.
DESIblitz.com, in conjunction with mac Birmingham, is proud to offer two exclusive tickets to see this star perform with his Indian classical troupe in Birmingham.
Originally from Kolkata, India, Bhattacharya-ji is known for modernising classical melody and rhythms. Coming from a heavily musical family, he began learning music at the age of three when he started experimenting on a Hawaiian steel guitar.
He has won countless accolades throughout his incredible career, and was even nominated for a Grammy award for his album Calcutta Chronicles (2009).
Now on tour in the UK, Bhattacharya-ji is performing from his new album Beyond the Ragasphere, which sees a bold fusion of modern and classical Indian sound.
Speaking about the album, Bhattacharya-ji: “It’s a journey of my musical life traditional to contemporary. Raga to Beyond the RagaSphere.”
The new album sees a great line-up of international musicians, and even Bhattacharya-ji’s own teenage daughter Anandi Bhattacharya will be debuting on vocals. Also part of Bhattacharya-ji’s troupe are Nishad Pandey on guitar, Subhasis Bhattacharjee on tabla, Antoine Morineau on percussion and Colin Bass on bass.
This show promises to be a superb evening of classical and fusion music, taking Indian sounds to a modern platform.
This is one classical Indian music show you definitely don’t want to miss!
Date and Time: Sunday 18th May 2014 – 8.00pm
Venue: mac, Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham, West Midlands, B12 9QH
