DROM, HARRICE MILLER and ASIAN ARTS AGENCY PRESENT Debashish Bhattacharya Debashish will be accompanied by virtuoso Indian tabla player Samir Chatterjee. "Indian ragas took on a flirtatious shimmer in the hands of Debashish Bhattacharya, who infused them with strains of Flamenco and Hawaiian music and performed them on a new breed of Indian slide guitar of his own devising. The result was a heady mix of languid Polynesian sounds caffeinated by the rhythmic fireworks of the tabla of Subhasis Bhattacharya, Debashish's brother." - NY Times "This Calcutta-based slide guitarist is a perennial NPR Music favorite and Tiny Desk alumnus. He's meshed his youthful fascination with Hawaiian steel guitar and love of the blues with the architecture and vocabulary of Hindustani (North Indian) classical music. The result is intoxicating" - NPR
