More about Bandish

BANDISH FUSION is a project by internationally acclaimed tabla maestro  Grammy- Nominated Subhen Chatterjee.

It is an experience of soul-stirring effect of sheer melodic beauty fused with incredible rhythms taking one to a whole new level of musical raptures.

The Band comprising six artists, plays a novel fusion music which combines Indian music with elements of contemporary jazz, Afro-Cuban & Mediterranean music. Their musical style was an unprecedented blending of genres combined with complex rhythms in unusual time signatures with a thoughtful blend of improvisational concept that was rooted in jazz as well as Indian music and harmonic influence from European classical music.

SUBHEN always had particular ideas for the instrumentation of the group, in keeping with his highly original concept of genre-blending in compositions. He particularly wanted Indian Music as an integral contributor to its overall sound. As the group evolved, SUBHEN adopted what became his trademark.
