    APosition International Music Forum (APositsia) - X, 2014, Saint-Petersburg, Russia.

    Debashish Bhattacharya (India)
    Indian Raga Music thrives on improvisation. No two performances by the same musician produce the same result. For a musician with substance, therefore, the sky is the limit. His improvisations within the framework of a Raga or within the limitations of the instrument he plays become a novel experience for himself as well as his listeners. Some go beyond

    Debashish Bhattacharya is one such most amazing music personalities of the world whose dynamism of artistry and creativity place him as a Genius.

    The performer in Debashish has the rare ability to communicate to each one of his listeners through his instrument in every performance. He has introduced a new finger style as well as playing style combining thumb and index finger. This produces finest bole variety, fastest Taanas, and strongest Jhala, which were technically impossible on a slide guitar earlier. A dedicated Guru and pathfinder Debashish has written a syllabus on Indian Classical Guitar, the first of its kind, which includes technical terminologies and abbreviations.

    Debashish's uncanny sense of musical understanding has established him as a recording artiste whose perfect musicality matches all categories of music be it Indian, or any kind of classical, jazz, blues, folk or Nue Music.

    He is perhaps the only phenomenon in the History of The World Music and Indian Classical Music who created a TRINITY OF SLIDE GUITARS. Christened as CHATURANGUI, GANDHARVI, and ANANDI, these, according to Bob Brozman are the new arms and ammunitions to fight against ignorance.

    “New music” as an autonomous and independent art form in Russia dates back to the Soviet era. Contemporary Music Club in Leningrad (1979-1982) was the first semi-official institution with rich and diverse artistic programme: from “classical” avant-garde to free improvisation to avant-rock and then exotic ethnic music. The Club was banned by authorities in 1982 and the tradition – under the name of Open Music festival – could be resumed only in the late 1980s, with Gorbachev’s radical reforms. In the 1990s the focal point of the new music movement shifted to Moscow, to Dom cultural centre with enthusiastic and tireless Nick Dmitriev at its helm. In St. Petersburg the tradition was sustained by the SKIF festival, and in the new century by the APosition festival.

    APosition’s aesthetic and cultural roots are transparent even from its name. “Wrong” A instead of the right “O” in the beginning of the word is an instant allusion to the legendary Sun Ra Arkestra. And opposition – apart from general oppositional spirit of any radical art form – is a direct reference to rock-in-opposition, a unique artistic and political movement in European and American rock, where intellectual sophistication, compositional complexity and improvisational freedom were going hand in hand with unambiguous political and ideological position (opposition) towards the cultural establishment as well as the show business.


    International Music Forum APositsia is an annual event taking place in St.Petersburg, Russia.

    It is a festival that represents musical projects from all over the world associated with creativity or even experimental.

    It consists of a 4 days of concerts, masterclasses and collaborations with local musicians.

    In a last ten years following musicians took part in APositsia festivals: Terry Riley, Pauline Oliveros, Miya Masaoka, Marcus Stockhausen, Brian Godding, Burton Greene, Hamid Drake, William Parker, Phill Niblock, Famoudou Don Moye, David Moss, Jim Thirlwell, Charles Gayle, Rhys Chatham, Tim Hodgkinson, Shelley Hirsch, Peter Principle, Chris Corsano, Dror Feiler, Dok Gregory, King Ayisoba, Evelina Petrova, Peter Brotzmann, Keith Rowe and many others.

    26:10

    The first Indian artist to use a steel guitar within classical Indian music was Pt.Brij Bhushan Kabra. He modified an archtop guitar, raising the guitar nut, and including sympathetic strings, drone strings which are tuned to the raga being performed. Pt. Kabra became the first Indian musician to play raga on the guitar, performed publicly, and recorded the successful album Call of the Valley (1967) with santoor player Pt. Shivkumar Sharma and flute player Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia in 1960. The guitar was seldom used in Indian classical music and his guitar playing gained popularity in the 1970s hippie culture. Kabra recorded solo albums and concentrated on teaching since the 1990s, but continued to perform. He was awarded the Rajasthan Sangeet Natak Akademi Award for 1983--84, was made a fellow of the Rajasthan Sangeet Natak Akademi for 1995--96, and received the national Sangeet Natak Akademi Award for 2005.Pt. Debashish Bhattacharya, Grammy nominated artist and BBC award winner guitarist and chief disciple of Pt. Kabra is following traditional and contemporary both forms of rendering on the platform of world music. He is also considered as one of the best guitarist in the world. Pt. Kabra's other disciples namely Shri Debasis Chakroborty(Guitarist) and Prof. Lovely Sharma(Sitarist) are performing all over the world at present.

    World-renowned master of the Hindustani slide guitar

    You've probably never seen or heard instruments like these. The Hindustani slide guitar is the creation of Debashish Bhattacharya whose creation pairs his first love – a Hawaiian lap steel guitar, a gift from his father when he was only 3 – and the sounds of India. In fact, he’s made three of them: a 24-string, hollow-neck chaturangui, the 14-string gandharvi and the anandi, a four-string slide ukulele.
    Debashish Bhattacharya has been officially recognised as a Pandit (master musician) since the age of 40 (he’s now 53) and acknowledged as one of the world’s greatest slide guitarists. He has since started his own school, Bhattacharya's School of Universal Music, and festival, India International Guitar Festival.
    Bhattacharya’s music incorporates a good deal of North Indian (Hindustani) classical music, but you can also hear the blues pouring out from his stunning instruments. Bhattacharya's guitars are infinitely subtle vehicles employing microtonal scales and intricate patterns alternating brief, lightly touched notes and long, sustained slides.
    Since his renown, Debashish Bhattacharya has worked on a number of guitar tours and multicultural projects. His most popular albums are Mahima with Bob Brozman, and Calcutta Slide-Guitar, Vol. 3, both albums ranked in the top 10 of the Billboard World Music Charts. In 2009 he was nominated for a Grammy award for his album Calcutta Chronicles.
    When visiting Roskilde Festival, Debashish Bhattacharya plays in a duo set-up with fellow musician Gurdain Singh Rayatt on tabla. Sitting cross-legged on stage this duo will take you to another place with their beautiful sounds.

    Debashish Bhattacharya (not to be confused with the Hindustani slide guitarist of the same name) is a leading sarod maestro from Kolkata. He is among the seniormost disciples of the late Buddhadev Dasgupta, and seeks to uphold his guru’s Shahjahanpur gharana tradition today. His daughter Debasmita is also building an exciting sarod career, having imbibed his refined, fluid approach to improvisation. Hear more of Debashish here:
    -Kaunsi Kanada Pt. 2 |

    Kaunsi Kanada’s modern form is often said to blend of two ragas - Malkauns on the way up, and Darbari Kanada on the way down. But the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, with the two sides interacting to create a complex, introspective mood. Sarodi Rahul Bhattacharya describes his reaction to learning it: “This raga is like meeting a sophisticated personality, who is gracious, emotionally open and balanced...you can have a conversation with this raga going over your past experiences as well as what lies ahead...Kaunsi Kanada’s colours span an infinite kaleidoscope”.

    The aroha [ascent] and avroh [descent] approximate to nSgmdnS and SndPmgRS respectively. Melodies are often heavily ornamented with meend [glides], gamak [vibrato], and khatka [rapid note flourishes], and tend to resolve with the characteristic phrase gmRS. An older version of the form also blends in ideas from Raag Bageshri. Listen to more interpretations of Kaunsi Kanada here:

    Learn more about the music:

    Debashish Bhattacharya is both a radical and a traditionalist. He traces his family back through 76 generations of artists, writers, and Sanskrit teachers, and established himself early. He played on All India Radio at the age of four, won competitions at seven, and invented his first slide guitar at fifteen. But just as his career was taking off he left his home in Kolkata to study with the late guitar pioneer Brij Bhushan Kabra for an intense apprenticeship of ten years.

    Today, his style draws on a multitude of influences - he learned sitar, sarod, and vocal music in his youth, as well as picking up Hawaiian and European influences. He plays a self-designed ‘Trinity of Guitars’ - the chaturangui, a 23-string amalgamation of sitar, sarod, violin, and rudra veena, the gandharvi, which blends the 12-string guitar with veena, santoor, and sarangi, and the anandi, a 4-string slide ukulele. To learn more read Darbar’s exclusive interview with him, covering reincarnation, the hidden harmony in ragas, and drawing inspiration from nature:


    Shuddh Sarang is a popular early afternoon raga from the Sarang family, a group of ragas often said to evoke different forms of sringara [attraction, romantic love]. It draws on Kalyan thaat, but omits Ga and takes both a tivra [raised] and a shuddha [natural] Ma in avroh [descent]. Re is the vadi [king note]. Hear more superb performances of Shuddh Sarang here:

    “Imperfection is your walk in the path of perfection. This is a lifelong journey, which will eventually end with you and start with someone else...I’m a student, and my drive is to learn new things and refine my actions. That’s the best way to live the rest of my life - I’m just the adventurous raga-guitar wala.” (Debashish Bhattacharya)

    Local luthier Michael Dunn dropped this 14 string Weisenborn-style guitar off at the place Debashish was staying in town and this is the first time he played it. He is tuning and feeling out the guitar as he goes in this improvisational performance.

    Debashish is perhaps the greatest slide guitarist who has ever lived and his brother Subhasis is a leader of his generation of Indian percussionists. It was my great pleasure to see them play at the Rogue Folk Club in the intimate (and great sounding) St. James Hall...

    album & project produced by Karol Czajkowski

    ----------------------------

    JOY!Guru is an extraordinary joint project of legendary Indian slide guitarist, Debashish Bhattacharya, and leading Polish musicians from Warsaw's alternative jazz scene: drummer Hubert Zemler, and double-bassist Wojtek Traczyk.
    The album, which draws on the atmosphere of the 1970's, was recorded during one all-night session in Poland's ''Abbey Road'' - Studio S4 of Polish Radio and produced by Karol Czajkowski.
    All the compositions were created without arrangements or preparation. As a result we get an improvised story about the meeting of the two musical traditions of East and West, told in the language of trance modal jazz, blues Hindustani raga and Hawaiian music.
