Debashish Bhattacharya Sun 16 Jun, 7.30pm • Main House 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 1960s, 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. In the words of Acoustic Guitar Magazine; “You will likely never hear better acoustic slide playing than this.” 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. His acclaimed albums include Slide Guitar Ragas from Dusk Till Dawn and Hawaii to Calcutta: A Tribute to Tau Moe, which was Songlines Album of the Year in 2017. Debashish will be joined by his regular trio partners, renowned tabla player Subhasis Bhattacharjee and vocalist Anandi Bhattacharya, for an 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
