May 19, 2019 - New York

DROM, HARRICE MILLER and ASIAN ARTS AGENCY PRESENT Debashish Bhattacharya Debashish will be accompanied by virtuoso Indian tabla player Samir Chatterjee.

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

Boasting a warm, finely burnished tone and a robust melodic and harmonic imagination, tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander has been exploring new musical worlds from the outset. He started out on the piano as a six-year-old, took up the clarinet at nine, switched to alto sax when he was 12, and converted to tenor when jazz became his obsession during his one year at the University of Indiana, Bloomington (1986-87).

"The people I listened to in college are still the cats that are influencing me today," says Alexander.
