This project is two-fold: with the funds generated, I will travel to Kolkata (Calcutta), India to study with the great Debashish Bhattacharya, the master of Hindustani slide guitar. While in India, I plan to record with Indian musicians after approx 3 weeks of study. This recorded music will be taken back to the states and worked on further. The end result will be a lush Indian steel guitar trance groove and an East-West curried collaboration.
The funds will used to travel to India (including visas, etc), attend classes, record (in Kolkata and Philadelphia), pay for musicians and to mix and master the final recorded output.
