Debashish Bhattacharya | March 2018

We presented one of the world’s greatest slide guitarists, Debashish Bhattacharya at St George’s Bristol in March 2018. Debashish has pioneered a unique style of Hindustani slide guitar and gained global recognition over four decades, including two Grammy nominations. Sanju Sahai, one of the finest tabla players of his generation, provided accompaniment. Local musician Durga Ramakrishnan opened the concert with a Carnatic veena recital.


Debashish Bhattacharya gave an interview and live session to BBC Radio Bristol ahead of his performance. You can listen again here:

The Bristol audience were thrilled and captivated by the incredible musicianship and gave a standing ovation at the end of the concert.

This event was presented in association with St George’s Bristol.
