Joining them on the night is Northern Rivers bassist Thierry Fossemalle. Together they make dynamic and captivatingworld music – not to be missed!
Surojato Roy is a percussionist, specializing in tabla, from Calcutta. The son of an Indian classical vocalist and a violinist, Surojato was introduced to playing at an early age by Pandit Tanmoy Bose. Later, he became the youngest ‘Ganda-Bandh’ student of renowned tabla maestro Pandit Shankar Ghosh and has been his disciple for the past eighteen years. He also plays the pakhwaj, darbouka, djemba, cajon, and khanjira (among other percussion instruments). Surojato has taken his considerable knowledge of tabla and brought it to villages in Arunachal Pradesh and parts of the Sunderbans, where he has taught impoverished children. He also teaches free music classes at the Surtaal Academy of Music, where students are given instruments they couldn’t otherwise afford.
Bart Stenhouse has the muscle to settle any score. Musically speaking, that is. Packing a powerful ability to balance raw edge with feel good grooves, Bart’s music brilliantly blends fiery flamenco with cool jazz and rollicking Indian rhythms to create a sound that leaves the listener energised and ready for more.
Bart started on a musical journey from an early age. However, it wasn’t until recently that he found his true calling – world fusion music. Inspired by his travels across North America, India and Spain, Bart’s music explores the signature harmonies, rhythms and instrumental identities of different world music cultures.
Wielding his weapons of choice, electric and flamenco guitar and electric mandolin, Bart teams up with original artists across the globe to explore and craft soundscapes not heard before. An experienced producer, Bart records and releases his compositions under his own label, Stenhouse Records and in 2014 brought to the world his debut album ‘Blue Benares’. Hailed as ‘one of the best up and coming jazz fusion artists’ by Indian slide guitar maestro and guru Pandit Debashish Bhattacharya at the 2016 India International Guitar Festival, the young Australian composer is fast building a reputation as an original, collaborative and innovative artist
