Album Review

Imagine the unimaginable. Then try to come to terms with a melding of American folk music and the traditional music of India. This difficult conception comes across as a natural mix bursting with fun due to the enthusiasm and virtuosity of Santa Monica-based Hindustani slide guitarist Debashish Bhattacharya, tabla player Subhankar Banerjee, and folk singer and guitarist Mark A.

Forget divisions, though. Playing a mutant, multi-stringed hollow body slide guitar of his own design, Debashish Bhattacharya and band members never let a single seam show.
