Gitarowe spotkanie na szczycie!
Jak inaczej można nazwać wspólną płytę jednego z gigantów jazzu - Johna McLaughlina (już w początkach swojej kariery grał z Milesem Davisem, Tony'm Williamsem czy Carlosem Santaną, liderował legendarnym grupom Mahavishnu Orchestra i Shakti), legendę muzyki Bluegrass, trzynastokrotnego zdobywcę Grammy Awards - Jerry'ego Douglasa (współpracownika takich gwiazd jak Ray Charles, Eric Clapton, Phish, Alison Krauss, Paul Simon, Mumford & Sons, Keb' Mo' czy Elvis Costello), współpracującego ze słynnymi kompozytorami jak Osvaldo Golijov czy John Williams gitarzystę flamenco - Adama del Monte, fusion-jazzowego perkusistę Jeffa Sipe'a (Jonas Hellborg, Aquarium Rescue Unit, Col. Bruce Hampton) i muzyków z Indii, dwóch wirtuozów tabli - Pandita Bickrama Ghosha i Pandita Tanmoy'a Bose'a, Mainaka Naga Chowdhury'ego na basie, gitarzysty Nishada Pandey'a, Raja Raj Narayan na pianie, Soumya Jyoti na flecie, śpiewaczkę Anandi Bhattacharya i Subhasisa Bhattacharya na instrumentach perkusyjnych.
Sprawcą tej wielokulturowej sesji nagraniowej jest Debashish Bhattacharya, jeden z najbardziej znanych muzyków z Kalkuty. Wirtuoz slide guitar od czasu nominacji do nagrody GRAMMY w kategorii "Best Traditional World Music Album" za album "Calcutta Chronicles: Indian Slide-guitar Odyssey" został jednym z najbardziej rozpoznawalnych muzyków współczesnych Indii. Najnowsza płyta "Beyond The Ragasphere" to rzadki przykład przenikania się kultur i wzajemnych inspiracji jej przedstawicieli.

'Here is a boldly original fusion experiment from the virtuoso Indian instrumentalist who designed his own slide guitars so they could match the intricacies of the sitar' 4 * * * * stars The Guardian



Editor's info:
World Music Network is proud to announce the exclusive release of Beyond The Ragasphere by Debashish Bhattacharya.

Via his ever-thirsting passion for travel and touring, Debashish has jammed with a stellar line-up of international musicians. On this album he is joined by jazz guitarist John McLaughlin and Bluegrass Dobro legend Jerry Douglas. The Spanish guitarist Adam del Monte peppers his flamenco fire over several tracks, and Jeff Sipe, an American jazz-funk drummer, also joins Debashish on his kit. Tabla accompaniment is variously provided by two of Debashish's childhood friends, the eminent players Pandit Bickram Ghosh and Pandit Tanmoy Bose. Bass vamps are delivered by Mainak Nag Chowdhury, aka 'Bumpy', a friend and student of Debashish. Other collaborators include nylon-string guitarist Nishad Pandey, keys player Raja Raj Narayan and flautist Soumya Jyoti. The album also introduces the flawlessly fluid vocals of Debashish's teenage daughter, Anandi Bhattacharya, and features his younger brother Subhasis on percussion.

Debashish Bhattacharya was born in 1963 in the pulsing city of Kolkata (Calcutta). From his earliest days he was thrust into a musical world, practicing with his talented family and experimenting on his first Hawaiian lap steel guitar from the age of three. Today he still operates out of Kolkata, tours internationally and has a heavy load of awards and accolades under his belt. He has released no fewer than five previous World Music Network albums and earned a Grammy award nomination in 2009 for his album Calcutta Chronicles.

Beyond The Ragasphere also introduces Debashish's daughter Anandi on vocals. In the words of her father, Anandi is a 'born musician', who has long aspired to be a professional musician. While the Kolkata recordings for this album were taking place, she was actually in the midst of taking a run of important school exams. Ever the multitasker, the talented teen still found time to deliver faultless vocals on her father's album and complete the academic assessments. She appears on four tracks in total, including 'Khamaj Tarana', a traditional evening raga sung in an updated, and ferociously fast, contemporary style.

With his cavalcade of thirteen talented musicians, Debashish explores the transformation of raga form in entirely new directions. Beyond The Ragasphere is an album not to be missed.
